It probably needs a new api call but I don't think it's necessary a
major change, I had a look at amf code earlier today, particularly the
whichways_deleted api call and it's 10 lines of code, I think the call
you need would be similar.


To make it quick a new index might be necessary but I'm not sure, I
suck at relational databases.
