[RC5] Old blocks in buffers

The client takes the newest blocks from the buffer, so if you have a
smaller outbuffer setting than your inbuffers, you will have some blocks
in your inbuffer that are old. If this is the case, your best bet is just
to delete the inbuffer once a month or so.

We will not reissue any blocks that are less than 30 days old. We will 
also try to give people notice of when a reissue will be starting.

Moo!
dB!
