Comment(by davidsarah):

 Kyle Marley says:
 > I'd like to have better lease control.  For example, I'd like to have my
 Latest backup live "forever" but to assign garbage collection dates to the
 earlier backups.  This would allow me to keep, say, weekly backups for the
 past month, and quarterly backups for the rest of the year.  I would
 expect to do my own scripting to make this happen.  I realize I could
 mostly get this with careful use of {{{tahoe rm}}}, but then my files are
 inaccessible immediately, whereas I'd rather the older backups be allowed
 to stick around until a garbage collection is run.  "You may delete these
 files at your convenience, but please keep them until you need the space."
