    I'm just curious as to whether it's possible to rename the Trash can to something else (in Jaguar).

    No, but you can make an alias and rename that

    I've seen it as "Wastebasket" on a screenshot. No idea how they did it though. I actually forgot about this when I posted my original question.

    It was probably called "Wastebasket" in a localization for a different country.

    I think the Trash is either called "rubbish" or "dustbin" in Australia, for example.

    I remember reading about it in Mac OS X: The Missing Manual (it was the 10.1 edition though). You would rename the trash's dock icon by messing with a .plist file, I believe (using root user capabilities).
