Keystone API versioning


Gholt brings up a good point in https://github.com/khussein/keystone/issues/36. In order to support the existing ecosystem of clients out there designed to work against swift and the Rackspace auth 1.0 API (as documented here http://docs.rackspacecloud.com/files/api/v1/cfdevguide_d5/content/ch03s01.html), we should make Keystone compatible with Rackspace 1.0 Auth.

I therefore propose the following:
1 - we make the first release of the Keystone API be a v2.0 API (the impact is that it will be accessed with /v2/tokens instead of v1.0/tokens)
docs: https://github.com/khussein/keystone/blob/master/docs/guide/src/docbkx/idmdevguide.xml.
spec: https://github.com/khussein/keystone/blob/master/docs/guide/src/docbkx/idm.wadl

2 – we make Keystone respond to v1.0 requests the same way Rackspace auth does (Blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/keystone/+spec/backward-compatibility).

Looking for input and feedback.
