I want to be able to delete rows from custom code through the IDataSetController

Currently, I can overwrite rows and I can add rows.  I do not have the ability to delete rows.  As a "pre test" operation I want to issue a request to get new data from my server and overwrite what currently exists in the dataset with it.  If there were previously more rows than there are now I have no way to remove the extra rows.

    In addition to having an operation to delete individual rows, it would also be useful to have a truncate operation to delete all rows. This would make it straight forward to programmatically refresh an entire dataset (as opposed to a loop to delete each row individually).
