As an aside, what version of this do you recommend?  I noticed that the
download page on the site only lists a beta version, and doesn't talk
about the other available versions in detail, nor identify any of them
specifically as the stable/release version.  I'd be interested in trying
it some time to see how well it works, as I've generally stuck to
deleting sensitive files using my own home-brew tools with FS-specific
optimizations (as I use a handful of different FS' on a regular basis.) 


Thanks, Matt
