[ospurge] looking for project owners / considering adoption

That's interesting -- we have already started working to add features and
improve ospurge, and it seems like a plenty useful tool for our needs, but
I think I agree that it would be nice to have that functionality built into
the sdk. I might be able to help with both, since one is immediately useful
and we (like everyone) have deadlines to meet, and the other makes sense to
me as a possible future direction that could be more widely supported.

Will you or someone else be hosting and discussion about this at the
Shanghai summit? I'll be there and would be happy to join and discuss.
