           Summary: Add cleanup to TimeBasedRollingPolicy
           Product: logback-core
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: Appender
        AssignedTo: logback-dev at qos.ch
        ReportedBy: agerwe at acxiom.com

The TimeBasedRollingPolicy class is very convenient for complex applications,
but it still leaves us with the task of manually deleting old log files. It
would be very nice if, like FixedWindowRollingPolicy, TimeBasedRollingPolicy
had an option to keep only up to _n_ time windows. 

E.g., I'd like to configure LOGBack to keep the last 30 days (or last 3 months,
rotated monthly) of files with the TimeBasedRollingPolicy. I could use the
FixedWindowROollingPolicy for this, but it's more cumbersome and I prefer to
have the date in the file name. 

Software should do the tricky stuff once for everybody to reuse. :-) Thanks
again for the excellent LOGBack, I can't rave enough about how much an
improvement it, along with SLF4J, is.
