Of course you can find a trashed file by searching through the trash.  But
if I knew where the file was, I wouldn't be using "Find", would I ;)

My point is that it would be much more convenient and reliable if the
Finder's Find included the .Trash in its search, as it did in OS 9.  As it
is now, it takes two steps to find a misplaced file:

Step 1.  Use the Finder's "Find".
Step 2.  If you don't find it, manually pick through your trash.
