Bulk Delete Servers

Registered by Glen Campbell on 2012-01-20

Users often want to delete an entire group of servers at once. While it's certainly possible to loop through the servers and delete them one at a time, it would be more efficient to be able to do it with a single operations.

I envision sending a DELETE to /servers with a payload that includes all the server IDs:

{servers: [{server: one}, {server: two}]}

(that's just an example; I'm sure someone could do better JSON than me).
