Automated, regular cleanup of execution logs

It would be great to have the ability to configure TX to automatically clean execution logs older than N days/weeks, on a rolling basis.

For example, a housekeeping process that is run once per day, at a time the user chooses: user choice of time would important because in my organization, we actually shut down our TX virtual machine (on Azure) for 8 hours each night. 

Another potentially-useful behavior configuration would be whether Successful logs should be treated differently to Failed logs. We might want to keep information about failures for longer than successes. 

The benefit of this automation would be to prevent TX users having to follow these steps: https://support.timextender.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004530803-Size-issues-with-your-repository-Clean-up-the-logs-and-get-more-space

The comments on that article already indicate support for this request. 

This is related to: https://support.timextender.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360005494483-Repository-Cleanup, but I think it is a different request because that issue is not discussing automation, but an improved user-interface.
