[users at bb.net] cleaning up old worker directories?

Hi all,

We're having a chronic problem where disks fill up because when a 
builder is deleted, its directory has to be cleaned up manually, which 
isn't very reliable.  Does buildbot have any facility for automatically 
cleaning up directories of jobs that cease to exist during reconfigure?

If not, is our best bet to replace retired jobs with some sort of 
cleanup job that happens to have the same name so it gets placed at the 
same directory?  I suppose these cleanup jobs would then need to be 
removed after they run once.  Not an ideal solution, but better than the 
status quo.  Any better ideas?
