I failed to mention something I've really needed: some hooks into
dirvish-expire, like the pre/post-server hooks in dirvish.

While backing up my databases, I have a post-server script that ships
them to a remote sftp-only account. When dirvish-expire runs and
expires some images from the local bank, I'd like to have a hook that
made it call a script with environment variables giving me the image
it's expiring, so I could remove them from my sftp account.

I could wrap dirvish-expire and parse its output, but wouldn't it be
more elegant if it had a feature like what I described?
