Hello Max,

I think you need to perform one PURGE call per variant, with the
appropriate data in the headers so that the VCL can compute the hash
of every single object you want to purge from the cache. I don't think
you can purge multiple objects at once, unlike with bans.

If I am wrong, I would love to be corrected because I had the very
same issue and had to went with bans instead :-)
