As of now, I'm dumping the u2 files to a DB (using BY2 w/waldo) and
keeping them around for some separate processing, but I never
absolutely have to go back to the u2 files for data. I'm in how others
are handling u2 log rotation and deletion without colliding with BY2.
Ideally, I wish there was a way for BY2 to "clean-up" after itself.
