Hi, I've started looking at this and I wonder how the limit should best be
specified. Should it be

* keep N log directories
* keep N log directories per 'test name'
* keep all log directories with timestamps newer than a given datetime
* keep all log directories with timestamps newer than a number of days,
hours, minutes, seconds back in time?

Any thoughts or wishes?
