there's a recycle module in 2.2.8a/example/VFS/recycle/

It should be easy to write such a module.

But note in 2.2 you can use only one module per share
and in 3.0.0beta you can stack more then one module.

and in 2.2 you have to use the same configuration for a module for each share.
otherwise you'll get trouble.

in 3.0.0beta each instance of a module (on a per connection/share basis) is 
able to have its own private data context.
