Add ability to rotate or truncate old Fiddler logs

Currently, it appears that the Fiddler log grows unbounded in length. If left unattended, there may be memory implications. 

Perhaps there should be an option in Fiddler settings to rotate the log, or just delete it after it gets to a specific size.

    How would you want to rotate the log? What would be the trigger(s) for rotation?

    Something like the Event Viewer log rotation might do - see attached or below.


    Maximum log size (KB): [xxxx]

    When max size is reached

    [] Overwrite events as needed (oldest events first)

    [] Archive the log when full, do not overwrite vents

    [] Do not overwrite events (Clear logs manually)

    In the toolbar, click the Keep: All Sessions dropdown and adjust to taste.
