Hi Hemant,
Thanks for the quick fix. I think this works - if one wants to send a delete
that exits after a clean finish one can always do ask_work(...,
:worker_method => :exit) which would queue the exit (not sure if that would
need a defined exit method in the worker class, or if it could call the
kernel one as is, but either way it should be fine). If people want
something more explicit in the api, I recommend having two methods
(delete/kill delete/destroy etc). Thanks again.
