Just don't make the mistake of specifying 00:00:01 thru 23:59:59. In that 
one second, the oldest, most forgotten spool file larger than your limit 
will be released. In the morning, users will call complaining about this 
huge old report that nobody requested spewing from their printer. In my 
case, everyone was pointing at the spool routing package, eventually 
found the real problem, was the tech who set up the outq ever red-faced.

The *ALWAYS special value would be a nice command tweak.
