That would solve the problem of deleting files with the same names either more 
than once or from different locations, but it loses the information where the 
file was deleted from.

He wrote that he was using Digikam to delete some photos.

I think the trash icon's color changes, but I am usually not trashing anything 
but prefer deleting instead.
If I trash something for whatever reason I tend to interacti with the trash 
applet in my panel.

My guess would be all, i.e. a summary of all trash locations, otherwise one 
would need one icon per trash location which would get crowded quickly.
