Or you could just increase gc_grace_seconds from the arbitrary and IMO
unreasonably low default of 10 days.

This will only really work with non-virtual nodes, if you repair
hardware-node-wide. With 256 virtual nodes per node, your repair overhead
will also be evenly distributed.

Someone has probably written the script, but if I were you I would consider
whether you really want to monitor N/RF fragile and independent repair
sessions simultaneously before using such a script.
