What backup software are you using?  Could you exclude backing up  
those folders?  I have users that would be very sad if I emptied their  
Trash for them (crazy- I know).  Plus, there's many other benefits to  
figuring out how to exclude certain paths and filetypes from backups  
(~/Library/Caches or *.mp3 anyone?)
