Purge only verbose feeds

Hi,

I'm trying to adapt the feeds purging to my needs. I have some really verbose feeds (news) that I don't mind purging every 7 days, as they produce at least 40 articles per day.
But some feeds only produce an article a month. Even if I haven't read it yet, I don't want to loose it.
If I set the purge delay to 30 days I loose both points above.

Having a way to configure purging so that when a feed has at least 30 articles, older articles than the 30th are purged, independently of duration, would be great.

As my installation is for multiple users I can not manually set the purge delay for each user's feeds.

Purging can be configured per-feed, btw.

And I have similar question. There is an advanced option "Delete unread articles". Could it be possible to have this option per feed? I have some feeds that I'm unable to read but I don't mind deleting unread items. But for some feeds I would like the unread feeds to stay.

Sorry, but there's only so many knobs you can add before UI starts to look like shit. I think we have just about enough knobs in there at the moment. :(
