[ceph-users] Reuse pool id

It's probably against the inner workings of Ceph to change the ID of the
pool.  There are a couple other things in Ceph that keep old data around
most likely to prevent potential collisions.  One in particular is keeping
deleted_snaps in the OSD map indefinitely.

One thing I can think of in particular with the pool ID is that I deleted a
large pool 3 weeks ago and there are still copies of the PGs being deleted
from the OSDs now.  If a new pool were created with the same ID, the PG's
could collide.
