Story #882: Need mechanism to delete content from CN that belongs to an MN
Metacat needs to actually delete content not just leave it
All "delete" actions in Metacat leave science metadata and data completely intact but DataONE wants there to be a way to actually remove them for good

Added additional switch so that there is no xml_documents_revisions or xml_node_revisions saved for a 'delete' action. This means Metacat has no knowledge of the document. DataONE still has the SystemMetadata, however. I'm not sure this is the safest course, but we will see.
