Ah!, confirmed with:

for i in `ls -S ~/.getmail/oldmail*|sed q`; do
    perl -F\\0 -anwle 'print $F[1]' $i|sort -n|sed q|LC_ALL=C xargs -i date -d 

OK, now all you need to do is add to the FAQ:

Q: Do the oldmail files just grow and grow?

A: No. Entries are removed 30 days after the items they refer to are
deleted from the server.
