> After doing a bunch of fault testing, I noticed that the JNs had a bunch of temporary
files left around in their journal directories which were no longer within the retention period.
For example, if a JN crashes in the middle of recovery, it can leave around a file like {{edits_inprogress_123.epoch=10}}.
These files are handy to keep around for forensics/debugging while they are still in their
retention period, but we should not leave them forever. The normal purging policy should apply.
