Comment (by andysem):

 Thanks for the proposal.

 The time_based_deleting feature looks interesting, although I think it
 would be easier to use if it was just a max age specification instead of a

 The record-based renaming seems too specific to me, and potentially
 complicated. It seems possible for the rename to actually move the file to
 another location, which would potentially require a copy operation. Also,
 in the current implementation I try to minimize the number of file
 operations because each of them is a potential point of failure. I don't
 think this feature is useful enough in general to warrant the risks. You
 can always have that kind of functionality by post-processing log files.
