Thanks Bob, but as I said in my original post I'd already skimmed the
sources of some of the helper scripts for the answer to my question. I'm
not looking to reinvent the wheel (or a back-up script). At this point
I'm just looking for a single, simple command to delete manually the
cruft that has built up over the last four months, due to my inattention
and desire to get Tarsnap doing the minimum I needed it to do (back-up!)
when I started using it four months ago.

I probably should use ACTS, since it's the most recently updated of the
shell scripts on the list. I may take a closer look at it, but at this
point a single line in my script should do all I really need.

Thanks again.
