There is support in the protocol for telling the server to set a flag
to remove an object as soon as it can. The server supports this flag,
and does indeed remove the object as soon as it can. However, I haven't
written anything in bbackupquery to allow you to actually send this
command to the server.
I shouldn't have mentioned it.
