I dunno. I thought about this too, and I get your argument, but I am not
convinced that a future mechanism would lend itself well to keeping
around additional sets of objects in the same way cruft packs do. In
that case, we would prefer having called this `pack.extraCruftTips` and
relegating it to the cruft pack system.

We could make this more generic, and extend support to the legacy
prune-via-loose mechanism. But like I said to Peff, I have a hard time
imagining anybody using it.

So, I'm torn. I see what you're saying, but I think I still tend to fall
on the side of leaving it as-is.

Thanks,
Taylor
