`multipass delete` command

The multipass delete command will remove instances from use. This will not destroy the instance and can be used again with the multipass recover command. However, using the -p/--purge option will destroy the instance and cannot be recovered.

The --all option will delete all instances. Take care if using this option.

Instances that are deleted but not destroyed can be permanently removed using the multipass purge command.
