Hm. I'm having the same problem. There are simply too many (broken) 
pieces of Balloon3D floating around in the various universes. The "never 
delete" rule certainly feels silly for something that is under 
development - we can't realistically expect people to never make 
mistakes or change their mind.

Technically speaking, how does one delete anything from a universe?
