The items will not be removed now, but instead moved onto a new layer 
(colour GREEN), so that you can see that "there was something here but 
someone else thought it was unimportant so it was trashed".

Also, if you trash a way, all its nodes will now go with it.

Still to do: Ability to trash "modified" objects rather than just 
"deleted" ones.
