This thread has been beat to death, but one other point:  What do
*you* think the vast majority of times you click "Delete" and are then
asked "Do you really want to delete?"   Of course I want to delete it,
that's why I clicked that big fat delete button.

The javascript confirmation is easy, and I do it all the time, but
when not so lazy and the action lends itself I provide an undelete
option afterwards for those rare "oops" times.
