Auto clean old temp orders (abandoned carts)

I think there should be a setting for how old temp orders to keep, and a trigger in the order list deleting the older ones automatically when the site/list is loaded - to avoid building up a massive database with useless orders (missing orders / abandoned carts).

This will be a great functionality, but if we watch it from the opposite way, we could take advantage of abandoned carts to grow the sales by sending a voucher to the client via email with -2% or -5% of the cart, if it will checkout the cart in the next few hours.

True. But that is also a different feature, and it's not acceptable for all customer  groups/markets. And anyhow it could still coexist with a auto clean, as it could be configured to run after x hours/days, then you have the auto clean running a week or three later ...

Btw George! Since there can be several temp orders in a session, there is a big chance you send marketing mails / reminders to someone who already has checked out / bought the product in question, and that would surely be quite lame. :)
