    A shell script and cron could do it. Automatically deleting things based on file properties and extensions is playing with fire. Cheers!

    I've created an open source, Belvedere/Hazel-inspired project that I'm calling "Maid". If you have RubyGems installed (typical if you have Ruby), it just takes a single command to install:

    Code:
    sudo gem install maid --pre
    # And if you don't have RubyGems, this should set you straight:
    # sudo apt-get install rubygems
    Specifying --pre will install pre-release versions, the Maid release candidate version in this case. The first stable release should be coming out within the next week, and I would love to have your input and opinions.

    There's more info at http://github.com/benjaminoakes/maid and http://rubygems.org/gems/maid

    Maid is based on some code I had written for myself. Eventually, it turned into something I thought others might find useful, so I packaged it up for others to use on Linux and the Mac. I hope it's useful for you.
