Both date and size are flawed -- Greg and Cjb have explored the flaws
of both approaches on devel at . The best notes on this are from Mitch so
far - he looked at the FSs and spotted things we can safely delete.
And we cannot query for starred items without starting the journal,
which does not start in no-space conditions.
IMHO, Cjb's script should delete caches and the files various files we
know are safe to nuke _before_ we even consider user data
- Mitch has identified stray CVS directories. These are safe to nuke.
- Someone mentioned large support files in eToys.
Might be worthwhile to nuke large Activities in ~/Activities.
If not enough space is available, then it makes sense to nuke user data.
