The use case I have the builder will come back up - later - but it will
probably be a brand new install with an old builder key/cert. So it
won't know about any of the old jobs.
Right, that's essentially the same as restarting a builder. The builder
process doesn't know about any old jobs, so it frees any jobs that are
assigned to it on the hub.
I guess I don't want to have to worry about a builder checking
I'm not sure why you would.
Kojira runs on the kojihub itself?
It can run anywhere. It's the daemon that monitors tags for changes and
triggers repo regens when necessary. It seems like a reasonable place
for this kind of recurring cleanup task. Or just run a cron job.
