Repository Version creation api should provide an easy way to clear out all units when adding new units
When creating a new repository version, its very easy to add units or remove units, but if I want to specify some list of units I want the repository version to have, i must first clear out all the existing units which is very cumbersome.
Allow users to specify
remove_content_units. This will let users remove all content units from a repo version. They can also specify
add_content_units which will add back units to the empty repo version.
Note that we'll need to change the current logic to add units after removing units. We want to document these behaviors clearly in the docs too.

Yes. However, I don't think that will happen always now. If A, B, C were in the previous version, they will not be present in the new version because we add first and then remove.
