I don't think having an option here is useful -- either we figure out
some way to make this reliable for clients, or we abandon the notion of
ever deleting the outputs and fix the protocol spec.

Can someone describe the race condition seen with clients? If it's just
a bug in the clients, it seems like this is a fine opportunity to
encourage such bugs to be fixed.
