Heads-up: new glance dependency on pysendfile



Just a quick heads-up that this review[1] if accepted will result in
glance taking a soft dependency on pysendfile.

The import is conditional, so where pysendfile is unavailable on a
particular distro, the 'glance add' command will simply fallback to
the pre-existing chunk-at-a-time logic.

Russell Bryant is working on packaging pysendfile for Fedora[2],
so that base will be covered.

I also spoke to the maintainer of pysendfile and there are ogoing
efforts in his community to update the python-sendfile packages for
Debian/Ubuntu - the existing packages[3] were based on the now-obsolete
1.4.x version of pysendfile.
