I'm clocking the time spent on daily tasks like email and for that I
have a "Daily Routine" TODO entry. Clocking in this task adds a new
clock line everyday, leading to a very populated CLOCK drawer. I'd like
to limit its size by either a maximum number of clock entries by
removing the older ones or better, removing the entries older than some
date. Is there some variable to that effect ?

Not that I am aware of (anyone is welcome to correct me if I am
wrong).

Because I have similar problem, I have been thinking about this for a
while.  I am no longer clocking, but in my case I have a lot of state
change logging.  But these are similar.

I was thinking about incorporating some handling of these entries into
a custom archival function.  Which would also handle some other things
at the same time.  But so far, it's just some notes and thoughts about
desired functionality and how it might work.  And I keep monitoring
the mailing list for some better ideas.  :)

Cheers,
