The original idea was that you can't delete jobs, but you can "flag"
the jobs you want to remember and hide everything else.  I've
forgotten what the original reasoning behind this was - in part, it's
because deleting jobs makes later data-mining more difficult.
However, this seems to have mostly just confused people, and I think
it also slows down handling the project databases.  I'll add the
delete function in a future version - it accompanies many other
changes that I need to test first, but hopefully this will be done
