Add methods hasDocumentByUNID and removeDocumentByUNID

I'd like to have 2 methods in class NotesDatabase


Function hasDocumentByUNID( unid as String ) as Boolean

Sub removeDocumentByUNID( unid as String )


It will help developers write more clear code

    Ok, thanks for clarification. however in terms of priority, this might not be a top10 feature.

    getDocumentByUNID throws an ERR 4091 if the document does not exist. It does not return Nothing.

    And loading a document just to delete it takes more time than necessary. The C API has methods to delete a Note by note id and a bulk deletion method that takes an IDTable. The equivalent would be adding "removeDocumentByUNID" to NotesDatabase and a "delete" method to the NotesNoteCollection.

    Currently there's only "remove" in NotesNoteCollection which just removes the note id from the collection/IDTable.

    Two lines of code are too complicated ?

    Set doc = db.GetDocumentByUNID( unid$ )
    IF not doc IS NOTHING Call doc.remove (true)
