It's no longer necessary.  The --no-delete option kept 7 days of
"expired" listings, which is now the default.

Stuart M. removed the listings cleanup from mythfilldatabase and enabled
the housekeeping listings cleanup for all users (before it was only run
from housekeeping if mythfilldatabase was not run automatically).  The
housekeeping listings cleanup always keeps 7 days of old listings, so
users who previously ran with --no-delete get the same behavior.  Users
who didn't run with --no-delete now get to keep a bit more information.

With this approach, users will find it easier to find out why their
favorite show didn't record last night--i.e. they can look at last
night's listings to find that the show wasn't aired on it's regularly
scheduled night.
