[openstack-dev] Returning Deleted Instance on Show

I'm looking at exactly the same problem in keystone, but considering a
slightly simpler variation of your call, e.g.:

  GET /projects?deleted

  GET /projects/{deleted_project_id}?deleted

I'm very hesitant to go down this road though... at least in the case of
keystone, we couldn't reliably expect these calls to actually return
anything (e.g. we might be able to soft-delete in one driver but not in
another, or an admin could clean up deleted entities periodically, etc).
