Sorry, bad choice of words. I should have said superceded rather than
outdated. When htmerge -m sees two records for the same document, it
takes the one with the most recent time of last modification to the
document, and discards the older one if it is in the target database.

The database keeps track of the document's last modified date for each
record, but does not keep track of the time the record was created or
updated (i.e. the last time the document was indexed). So, no, there
is no way to get rid of records not reinserted within a certain time
