Delete All Documents API

Right now if you want to delete all documents, you either need to delete the collection (which could mean code changes to point to a new ID), or you need to write a script to delete every document one by one which is time consuming.

    Instead of an "delete all" function, wouldnt it make more sense to allow the user to delete documents which match a specific query? See my Idea here: https://internal-ibm-watson.ideas.aha.io/ideas/WDS-I-91
