How to Delete Objects from the RADB

Just for information and better understanding: The requirement to
include the current object in delete requests is there to prevent a race
condition. Someone else could change the object before you delete it.
Including the current object makes sure that you delete exactly what you
expect to delete. The registry software does a simple compare of the
objects and bounces the delete request if they do not match.
