 During bugwash today semantics for this was discussed.

 Proposal of having a 'do_purge' flag available for setting in 'vcl_recv'.
 This flag will cause any lookups done on this request to become purges
 instead. This way also hit_pass-objects would be affected.

 This work should perhaps be done together with the propsoed soft-purge
 work, and the soft-purge functionality follow a similar structure. Handing
 to scn as he has been working on the soft-purge functionality.
