[openstack-dev] [Cinder][Driver] Delete snapshot

It is defined by the expected behaviour of cinder... and changing that
is hard. Allowing the driver to give feedback is also hard, since the
API returns long before the driver gets called, so there really isn't
an easy route to send feedback, and a 'last status' field or similar
in the volume/snap/etc object is rather ugly and can get confusing
when several operations on a volume are issued at once...
I'm tentatively suggest that a driver that cannot meet the cinder API
expectations (including cloned / from snap volumes being allowed after
the removal of their parent) is buggy, not that cinder is buggy for
not allowing the driver any behaviour it wants.
