User story:

As an administrator, I need a tool to help me clean up my databases that will actually delete records instead of just marking a deleted record.  Knowing that the database is actually cleaned up and the appropriate records have really been deleted will help me troubleshoot errors.

Purpose of function: 

Currently, the main housekeeping job (manual, that is) for Compute is that of DB cleanup.  This feature adds a tool that actually deletes DB records when asked.  Currently, Nova (and other services) use a "soft delete" of rows, when the system just marks a deleted column instead of actually deleting the instance record from the database.
