Well...  Regionals/mid-levels have always been able to delete net
announcements, but the CIDR deployment raised the same sort of issue
which had been raised previously when "silent nets" had been discussed:
how about a way of deleting nets from the routing configuration files
without removing the information from the PRDB, since we might
reconfigure more-specific information soon?  A normal delete is fine,
and we are [read: "I am" ;-) ] finishing the implementation of the use
of a "no configure" flag in the file generation (it'll be done for next
Mon/Tues's config run).

If you'd like to have your original 150 nets removed by hand before
Tues. AM, please send them and I'll take care of it; looking at the
current situation, it's probably a good thing to do.
