Fwiw, this new_Deleter does not have the same semantics as the old code. The old code would
schedule the deletion on the ET_TASK thread pool, whereas new_Deleter runs on any of the net-threads.
This could mean that we’d block a net-thread for some time if the remap table is sufficiently

I don’t know if it is a real, detrimental problem, but if I recall we moved the remap.config
reloading / management to ET_TASK because it did have a real problem when loading very large

Maybe the right thing is to make new_Deleter use ET_TASK? If there are no task threads configured,
that falls back to the old behavior?
