Are there any SQL statements that I can run manually from time to time to remove obsolete data? Or is the information about which data is obsolete not stored in the database?

Why then does the size of the state.sqlite file seem only to increase, never to decrease? Isn't it bad for the wear and tear of my disk to be constantly rewriting a several-hundred-megabyte-and-growing file containing mostly obsolete information?
