You still want to tell innd what's going away so it can knows what to

Yeah, the actual deletions would be done by the process feed.  It was 
really the lack of something better than ctlinnd cancel that convinced 
me to leave cancels out of the controlchan thingy.  That, and being too 
lazy to look into how to feed supersedes to the thing.
