The script aims to remove features based on a kill list. The default behaviour is to look at the features's ID. If the feature has an ID (case insensitive) listed among the kill list it will be removed. /!\ Removing a level1 or level2 feature will automatically remove all linked subfeatures, and removing all children of a feature will automatically remove this feature too.
