It would be nice to see an easier feature top purge old (expired) data from features like the event calendar or news feeds.

Sounds sensible - what UI would you prefer for a task like this? A "select multiple elements in the tree and execute delete on them" or a "purge old events command on the event folder" or "delete via a grid view" or a "query command based ui"?

As a immediate workaround you could do a small C# routine that does this and have it run periodically.

Adding a ActionElement to the root page containing event or news items named "Purge old entries" would also be a simple solution. This way you could just right-click on the page and choose "Purge old entries" from time to time.
