[openstack-dev] [keystone] [oslo] new unified limit library

There was discussion that Nova would deprecate the user quota feature since it really didn't fit well with the 'projects own resources' approach and was little used. At one point, some of the functionality stopped working and was repaired. The use case we had identified goes away if you have 2 level deep nested quotas (and we have now worked around it).

    I think the initial implementation of a unified limit pattern is
    targeting limits and quotas for things associated to projects. In the
    future, we can probably expand on the limit information in keystone to
    include user-specific limits, which would be great if nova wants to move
    away from handling that kind of stuff.
