 still there.

 This works for me.  It's dependent on `broctl cron`, though, did you have
 that running?  And it also checks actual file modification times so if you
 tried to simply cheat it by renaming directories that doesn't work, you
 have to `touch -m -t` stuff.

 > I also wonder if we should have this turned off by default?  I'd rather
 not have people surprised when their logs start disappearing after a month
 (the default setting is 30 days).

 Yeah, I think just commenting it out in `broctl.cfg` might be good.  I'll
 do that and put it on fastpath.
