To provide a little more info on this....

Usage is RemoteFile::DeleteFile("myth://IP/filename");  This is a static
method, you do not need to instantiate a RemoteFile to use DeleteFile,
that is handled internally.

For the protocol, the added command is "DELETE_FILE filename".

The Delete honors the DeletesFollowLinks and TruncateDeletesSlowly
settings.  The truncate is spun off into another thread on the backend
after the delete status is returned to the user.
