Make possible to clean parts of the design that cannot be used and Designer forgot to delete

Given that Notes/Domino applications have a long history, so do the design elements. I have seen that sometimes a lot of old, unused crud is carried along. Especially View, Form and Subform elements suffer from this crud.

I have found column indexes for which the UI does not indicate they should exist. Compiled LotusScript objects for fields that are not there, Field references for fields that no longer in the body of the Form design, etc.

The view indexes hurt performance when the indexer runs.

I have cleaned up forms and subform of old crud by manually removing out of place items and saved up to 50% of the size on disk of a form or subform.

It would be great if some sort of cleaning procedure would exist, so the old crud would be removed without aspiring to be a monk.
