#' Clear data sets from the cache
#'
#' This function remove specific (or all by default) named data sets from the \code{cache}
#' directory. This will force that data to be read in from the \code{data} directory
#' next time \code{\link{load.project}} is called.
#'
#' @param ... A sequence of character strings  of the variables to
#'  be removed from the cache.  If none given, then all items in the cache will be removed.
#'
#
#' @return Success or failure is reported
