Session->Cleanup->Cleanup unused sources

that moves all unused files into a "wastebasket". Ardour then forces you
to reload the session before:

Session->Cleanup->Flush wastebasket

becomes available. This ensures that if there are any mistakes during
cleanup, the files still exist, and a manual fixup can be done.
