  • `swuser` switches users using Mac OS X's Fast User Switching feature. You can either switch out to the login window or to another user. Note: unfortunately, this is not currently compatible with `screen`.
  • `trash` allows trashing of files instead of tempting fate with rm. Correctly handles trashing files on other volumes, can list trash contents w/disk usage summary, and empty trash w/confirmation.
