zef: too many files in ~/.raku/short

Hello,

I found out that on my system at a certain point zef was unable to read the
content of ~/.raku/short and because of that to install any other module.
According to zef there were too many files in that directory and indeed
there were a lot of subdirectories.

I don't know what happened, because I try to keep my installation lean and
I uninstall old versions of all the modules that I update.

Is it possible that zef failed to update that directory content when, I
don't know, a module fails to install or something like that, leaving
behind unused directories?
Has that happened to anyone else?

Also regarding zef, I noticed that ~/.zef/store stores a "git clone" of all
the previous versions of every installed module, even when one explicitly
uninstalls the old versions of them.
Is there a zef command that I'm unaware of to clean up that directory?
