When for example logrotate is used maybe that could keep rotating the
file(s) till it is gone.

So on purge the logfiles remains and then one disapears every
day. Logfiles would be kept as long as with the software
installed. You just don't get new ones.

I think nobody could fault that method. Now how wants to write a patch
for logrotate for this?
