I use it to.  Wrote a simple script that uses rsync to cleanup.  Only need
to run it a couple times a year.  Disk space is cheap, and you really
don't need that much when you no longer mirror all of the game data you
don't need.

I do use it quite a bit.  Not strictly necessary, but convenient.  I also
like having the history and being able to go back to old updates packages
for debugging.

Might be interesting to compare my current version to it as well.
