I've written the developer about this, but he says he knows what users want and need -- perhaps this discussion will change his mind.

I like to remove the Finder icon from my dock. I don't want to remove the Trash icon from my dock. I believe -- strongly -- there should be an option to allow (or not) removal of the Trash icon. As it is, there isn't. If you want the ability to remove the Finder icon, you have to accept that you'll have the option to remove the Trash icon as well. As a result, every day or so, when attempting to empty the trash, I accidentally mis-click and remove the Trash icon instead. Frustrating and annoying. All it requires is a simple checkbox in preferences, but the developer says so many options would overwhelm users. I beg to differ. Thanks for listening.

    Bob, there's an open ticket for this (nr. 262) but it's low priority, for the moment. We'll notify you when there's an update from the devs.
