Unusual action prompt in gmail iOS app

As I was trying to delete a mail today on the gmail iOS app, I found it strange that a right swipe on the list item produced a red ‘archive’ button instead of a familiar delete button as in many apps. Normally one wouldn’t expect gmail to do something opposed to prevalent UI conventions. Perhaps they are trying to see if enough people buy into this before they hardwire it as they always do.
