Yep.  I consider this an entirely different category than pwipes; it's
just maintinence.

I have an account system, and I track data like the amount of time played
on the account and the number of times the account has logged into the system.
Accounts which have logged into the system only once I consider prime
candidates for purging after a month or so.
