I would suggest making --remove-older-than usable on normal backups invocations.

In the current implementation it's only possible to run it on a backup folder, eg:

rdiff-backup --remove-older-than 5B /mnt/backup

But it could be useful to use that also on normal command invocations, something like:

rdiff-backup --remove-older-than 5B /mnt/original /mnt/backup
