I believe this has been referred to as Garbage Collection for the
repository.  As far as I know there is no such feature.

I'm not sure if there's a better way but I think you can achieve this
with something like
1. Create new repo
2. branch each branch you want to keep from the existing repo into the new.
3. move the new repo into place to replace the old.

Remember, take a backup first.
