Swarm should delete shelved changelists if the changelist was submitted during a review

If you create a review and the reviewer submits the changelist, then the original shelved changelist should be removed. It is just clutter and leads to confusion about what was done. Seems to be the users job to do it currently - which shouldn't be the case.

A few possible checks need to be made, e.g. original shelved changelist is untouched, and doesn't have andy pending files (just shelved ones).

    I agree with this, but my fear is that swarm is actually using those shelves for storage of all the files at each version instead of a separate cache/storage area, and by cleaning up all those shelves, you'd lose everything from those reviews except the final version and the comments
