Lets say you have a large (or small I supposed) list of locations that you want to delete. The Web UI is less than desirable for this so you can use zendmd to pull this off.
loc_names_to_delete = ("Location1", "Location2")for loc in dmd.Locations:    if loc in loc_names_to_delete:        dmd.Locations.manage_deleteOrganizer(loc)
