You do not delete the peers, ENet handles the management of this. The peers
array is allocated once when you create a host, up to the maximum number of
peers you specified then, and only ever deleted when you delete the host.
All ENet does is change the variables in this peer to reflect the
connection status. This peers array is accessible in the host->peers field.
However, if you need to send a packet to all or some subset or these peers,
it is still probably better that you manage that yourself, as ENet does not
keep these peers in any particular order. So if you have a large number of
peers pre-allocated, iterating over this array for only those connected
peers might not be very efficient relative to just keeping a list of
connected peers.
