Possibility to delete all documents in an index without deleting and recreating the index
You should provide a possibility to delete all documents in an index without having to delete it and creating it again.
We need this for security and compliance - deleting the index and recreating it causes a scenario in production whereby the index may not always exist when a new document needs to be inserted into it.
At least with a delete all, it will delete all the existing documents and either create an exclusive lock to pause new inserts or allow inserts which are held in a separate transaction.

Any progress on this?
