Simple and quickly hacked togheter, this script is used to reset the
eve-demo API to its initial state. It will use standard API calls to:
1) delete all items in the 'people' and 'works' collections
2) post multiple items in both collection
I guess it can also serve as a basic example of how to programmatically
manage a remot e API using the phenomenal Requests library by Kenneth Reitz
(a very basic 'get' function is included even if not used).
