While showing the latest testsuite results by default is a good idea  
(just like the current testsuite page), it is useful to have older  
testsuite results as well. Sometimes regressions are not fixed or  
noticed immediately, and in such a case it can be useful to go back  
further than 7 days to see where this happened. And as long as the  
database doesn't become prohibitively large, I don't see a problem  
with keeping them all.
