Can't find the Trash folder through Ubuntu Dash

Bug Description

The trash folder doesn't appear in Ubuntu Dash when I search for terms such as "trash", "recycle" and "bin". I don't think it's possible to find it with any keyword. The current alternative is to open Nautilus and then from its sidebar open the trash bin.

Well, you shouldn't need to open nautilus, since Trash is always in the Launcher. (Unless something's gone wrong in your Launcher.) But perhaps it should be accessible from the Dash, too. Thanks.

Oh, I had totally forgot that the Trash icon is in the Launcher. Maybe it's not much of an issue then. It's just so natural for me to open stuff through the Dash's search field since I'm very keyboard-centric.

Then I should also mention that it's available with the Super-T keybinding. :)

But it's possible that design might consider having it available from the Dash, too. One of the responses to the recent Amazon flap was "the Dash helps you find *everything*", and that's certainly broad enough to include your own Trash folder. So I added a design task to the bug. And I marked the code component incomplete; that's the usual thing to do until design has considered it. Thanks.
