Does "test-write" ever get expunged?

Seems to me a somewhat trivial process.

1) issue a delete after a successful GET
2) have the server periodically do garbage collection (which might be
the 10k files you're talking about, but why not set it to say, 50
files or something much lower? Why grow a directory index so large
with unneeded files?)
