It's less a memory issue for me than a space issue, both on the
filesystem (all the old build output text files) and in the database,
where they have to be dumped to XML and re-imported when you upgrade.
I want the option to completely remove them from the system.

A staged approach and saving historical data as you have described is
fine with me though, it turns the process into 'archiving' and
'purging'.  I still want the ability to completely get rid of it,
preferably with a scheduled task.
