not really harder, but I guess it depends on the storage whether it's 
better or not ;)

for ZFS and qcow2 it's probably faster to just (recursively) delete the
volume itself including all snapshots, instead of each snapshot that we
know about individually up-front, and then the image and any remaining 
snapshots as second step.

for Ceph it's about the same work anyway, the difference is just whether 
we want to cleanup non-PVE-managed, protected snapshots or leave them 
alone and not remove the volume instead..

for LVM-thin I think it does not matter much?
