Great, it works.  The script I've been enhancing for the JavaScript 
uploads now allows individual and batch page deletion.  Batch deletion 
speed is about a page a second.

Example individual delete: create a page using the file TEST.txt as its 
contents, then immediately delete it:

$ modified-wpd edit javascript/testpageF/x TEST.txt 'test page'
Success

$ modified-wpd delete javascript/testpageF/x 'remove test page'
Success

Example batch delete: use ls command to list pages with a certain 
prefix, then delete all of them:

$ modified-wpd ls javascript/testpage
javascript/testpage
javascript/testpage/second
javascript/testpageC
javascript/testpageD
javascript/testpageE/another

$ modified-wpd ls javascript/testpage > TODELETE.txt

$ modified-wpd batchdelete TODELETE.txt 'test pages to delete'
Delete javascript/testpage
Delete javascript/testpage/second
Delete javascript/testpageC
Delete javascript/testpageD
Delete javascript/testpageE/another
SUMMARY: deleted 5 pages in 5 seconds

The modified-wpd is in my github:
     https://github.com/maxpolk/msdn-js-conversion
Snag setenv.sh and modified-wpd.   Edit setenv.sh and source it in, then 
run modified-wpd with no args to see usage.  The api root should be 
http://test.webplatform.org/t for the test wiki.
