Comment (by dd32):

 After thinking more about this, I don't think we should automatically
 delete generated packages, even if possible.

 Having the archives hanging around isn't an issueb with disk usage, and
 they were only deleted in the past as all archives were regenerated every

 The only scenario I can think of where deleting packages would be needed,
 are where it has security or IP concerns. For those cases we could have
 either a bin script or a purge option in the back end.
