We're working on a few different things and need to completely delete all filters, and all dashboards (and their gadget population of data, so we don't end up with a bunch of stacktraces in the log).

There is no good way. The only way to do it en masse is also the most dangerous, which would be deleting directly from the database. Unless an engineer from Atlassian or one of their "Partners" could give you the necessary queries to make sure that all references were removed from all of the necessary tables, I certainly wouldn't recommend doing it.
