Yep, that's right. There's an undelete capability buried deep in the 
Rails port which is only accessible via P1's AMF (binary) API... not 
least because it's so inefficient that putting it on public view would 
probably cause the db to slow to a crawl.

It's worth keeping until an alternative is coded, but a sufficiently 
minority interest that I think it'd be ok to provide it by simply 
keeping P1 accessible via URL-munging and "set your preferred editor" only.
