The warehousing tool is certainly feasable. Essentially it would move 
all the old transactions and tickets (using local criteria for the meaning of "old")
to a seperate database which was intended for reports, data mining and archival use.
I've never written the tool because I've never been anywhere with an RT instance 
that was to big or slow for easy use.
