i think the reason there's nothing prominent in the ui is because most
(?) of us run our myth systems at basically 100% disk usage all the
time.  that's what the auto-expire settings are for.  if you really
want to keep something just turn off the auto-expire flag.  that's
what we do and it works pretty well!
