Delete old news from device?

How can I get Calibre to automatically delete previous editions of downloaded news from device when syncing new versions of downloaded news to the device?
I know that "Keep at most ___ Issues" in the download scheduler takes care of this for the local Calibre library, but not for the device.
In my case the device is a rooted Nook Color.
Thanks,
Ari

Calibre deletes NOTHING from your device without user pushing buttons.
I don't think this is going to change. Just one OMG, you deleted XYZ when I wanted to keep that issue.
Ain't gonna happen

Has anyone written a plugin, or a script for this? Or is there a third-party tool that will accomplish this?
Can Calibre be configured to launch a batch file after synchronizing with the device?
