New feature: Delete lab profile and all associated VM profiles

I recently had to undergo a very overdue clean-up. I literally had to delete hundreds of VM profiles by hand and then I could delete the lab profiles.

We need a feature that allows me to delete a lab profile with all associated VM profiles. I know this is risky so open a popup that says YOU ARE ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING VERY STUPID, ENTER YOUR PASSWORD TO ASSUME ALL RISK or whatever you find appropriate.

Who would most benefit from this idea? Lab Developers or Lab Authors

    I recently had to do a cleanup as well and it wasted hours. This feature would help quite a bit. Along the same lines, I put in a new feature request to copy all associated files in a lab profile to a new folder. That would help us get rid of all of the extraneous files that are left after the used ones are moved. Both of these would save a lot of time and enable lab developers to keep things organized.

    I agree, this feature would be useful. To elaborate, this feature should allow for granular deletion of (any || all) VM Profile(s), diff-disk(s), and even the storage, related to a specific LP.

    The feature should be an 'advanced' feature, certainly not the de facto approach when deleting an LP.
