There's no way to do that across all users presently (for each user,
-expunge works though), other than running a manual rm (-skipTrash)
command for the .Trash files under each /user/* directory. I suppose
we can add in an admin command to clear out all trash manually
(forcing, other than relying on the periodic auto-emptier thread).
