Long term blockchain size - delete/garbage collect ?

+2 votes
Newbie question: I understand blocks get generated even when there are no transaction (for time keeping etc). Running a blockchain for many years will lead to huge chain with terra/penta bytes of storage. Is there a delete/garbage collect feature planned ?
Maybe delete all the dead transactions
 Thanks !

Please see this comment and the surrounding discussion:


For now there's no pruning on the immediate roadmap, But we do plan to provide a mode where mining pauses if there are no new transactions.
