Thanks you!   I will eventually be able to remove my disparaging comments
and work-arounds in OSC for tenantId vs tenant_id!!!

FWIW I followed Horizon's lead in OSC and removed the tern 'tenant' from
all user-visible parts, except for the compatability OS_TENAMT_{ID,NAME}
variables and --os-tenant-{id,name} options. Neither of those is documented
anywhere though.  This includes commands for all OS APIs it supports.
