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.
