Dear Simon,

I've been following the PITR thread with great interest since a long time.
I apologie to jump it so late, but there's one question I can't find any
answer for.

Given that log files will be archieved, how can we purge them (ie know for
sure we won't need them anymore)

if I do a backup of the DATA dir, then obviously I won't need the logs
that were taken before. I can't just delete them all because maybe a few
will be archived during the backup.

Same thing goes for pg_dump.

Maybe I've missed something.

Regards, and many thanks for that great feature
