I like this proposal very much! 

It does make me wonder though whether it really needs to be a sub-component of an Appender.
I've been thinking about adding a generic worker thread (i.e - an Executor) that can trigger
the file rollover, or other things that need to be done periodically. If we have such a thing
then it might make sense to have a <Schedule> component in the configuration and add
the DeletePolicy (or DeleteTrigger or whatever) configured there as a scheduled task.

This request is to enhance DefaultRolloverStrategy or another appropriate component to allow
a max number of files limit to apply across days/months/years when a filePattern includes
a date pattern.
