I'm using a (not yet published) small patch and a (also not yet
published) plugin to keep track of channels:
The patch keeps a time stamp whenever a channel announcement is seen,
and the plugin tracks the first-seen and last-seen time of all channels
persistently. If a channel was not seen for some time, the channel name
gets marked, and the channel can easily be deleted manually later.
If there's interest in this, I can publish these two.
