[openstack-dev] [Fuel] Get rid of fuelmenu

Here's my 2 cents on it.
I think the effort we put to support fuelmenu doesn't worth it. I used
to deploy fuel too often in previous release, and I never used
features of fuelmenu? Why? Because I prefer to apply changes on
already deployed node. Moreover, I don't like that users are prompted
with fuelmenu by default. I want to deploy fuel automatically, without
any manual actions (though it's another topic).
I'm agree with Vladimir, vim + config files are enough, since Fuel is
not a product for housewives. It's a product for those who do not
hesitate to use Vim for soft configuration.
