I didn't commit it right away, but waited a few hours. In case you 
didn't notice: The development of Drupal has been sped up in order to 
get 4.7 out of the door. The patch did also exist for a few days before 
I committed it.

Yes, it was broken. Now I consider it fixed. It removes all traces of 
the user from the system. That is what most people will consider to be 
the purpose of a delete function. If you don't want that to happen, 
don't delete users but block them.
