Add capability for bulk deletion of blobs
Right now, deletion of a container is the only way a number of blobs can be deleted together. The drawback, however, is that the container name cannot be used again for some time. This causes inconvenience for a number of use cases.
Proposal: There should at least be way for emptying the container in one API call

It is possible to delete blobs one by one but it performs terribly. If we could pipe a list of blobs into Remove-AzureStorageBlob this would help
This seems like a no brainer. Why is this not a standard option? As it is, I process big data and several thousand csv files per day. I have to delete them in a loop, and then there is a problem with limitations with loop execution count and timeouts...really annoying.
