Admin-only OpenStack API, since they won't have anything to do with
EC2 API, and at this point, nova-manage is very EC2-centric, and
adding it to nova-manage could potentially be extremely confusing.

Since this functionality is mostly going to be used by service
providers, most of which have their own set of custom management tools
(see: python-novatools, etc..), I think it's best to stick it only in
the admin API for now.

My 1.5 cents,
