gc: make --prune useful again by accepting an optional parameter

With this patch, "git gc --no-prune" will not prune any loose (and
dangling) object, and "git gc --prune=5.minutes.ago" will prune
all loose objects older than 5 minutes.

This patch benefitted from suggestions by Thomas Rast and Jan Krï¿œger.

 SYNOPSIS
 --------
-'git gc' [--aggressive] [--auto] [--quiet]
+'git gc' [--aggressive] [--auto] [--quiet] [--prune=<date> | --no-prune]
 
 DESCRIPTION
 -----------
 'git-repack'. Setting `gc.autopacklimit` to 0 disables
 automatic consolidation of packs.
 
+--prune=<date>::
+	Prune loose objects older than date (default is 2 weeks ago,
+	overrideable by the config variable `gc.pruneExpire`).  This
+	option is on by default.
+
+--no-prune::
+	Do not prune any loose objects.
+
 --quiet::
 	Suppress all progress reports.
