How about a setting for managing revision deletion criteria in the 
content type administration? A simple text input or select box would 
suffice for most needs and allow you to specify 0 as well. If someone 
wanted to be really tricky they could work in the date logic as an 
alternative or as an additional cutoff point so that we can for example: 
keep at most 5 revisions and delete all revisions older than 4 weeks, 
etc. Thoughts?
