Are you sure there is not a single criteria by which these documents
are selected for deletion? Surely they're not 1000 random documents?
Perhaps the criteria can not be described by the fields you're
currently indexing, but that's just a matter of adding the necessary
index fields.

E.g. <delete><query>date:[20080101 TO 20080330]</query></delete>
