Storage space is virtually limitless and dirt cheap when you think about local hard drive storage. But I also use more limited storage solutions, e.g. online backup and I applaud every app that doesn't generate content that grows limitless in the background and that doesn't need special backup rules and/or extra applications like Hazel.
It's like the "Move Old Data to Archive" command. I don't *need* that. I could leave it in OF forever, there's no performance reason to remove these projects.

I also see you point archiving forever, but I never treated my OF files as project documentation needed later for reference.

A "Remove Backups older than 1 Week|1 Month|1 Year" dropdown shouldn't exactly be rocket science delaying further features by months, or at least this is my impression. But I'm no CS mayor either. ;)

edit: On a second thought I've done so, but I exported just the project and used a plain text file (taskpaper) which goes with the rest of the project documentation.
