Floating IP in OpenStack API


Hello everyone,

We going to add possibility to assigning floating IP addresses in OpenStack API.
Our goal reproduce AWS behavior when creating instance automatically
assigns any free floating IP or add methods to OpenStack API for
allocation and association API addresses.

At this time we see three way:

1. FLAG --auto_assign_floating_ip (default=False)
2. Optional parameter "auto_assign_floating_ip" in existing "create" method
3. OpenStack API add floating_ip - allocate_floating_ip, associate_floating_ip

What way is more suitable at this time?
