It seems that we likely only need (say) one week's worth of nightlies (each
is about 50M). What is the appropriate number?

Is there a buildbot config option that is missing, that is avoiding a purge
of these files? Or does something "behind the scenes" need to take
responsibility?

I believe Infra is likely to start *enforcing* some duration and overall
disk usage constraints. This likely won't impact us, as long as we purge
old builds according to our desired retention. So I think the more
important concern for our community is the question of "how many nightlies
do we want to retain?" ... I suspect whatever answer will be fine, but
finding an accepted consensus would be helpful.

I'll lead with this stake-in-the-ground:
** retain one week of nightly builds
