[openstack-dev] [Neutron] Versioning of the fwaas API

I was on Twitter and got linked to this blog post[1], and then got
linked over to Terraform's docs, and of course I went and checked out
its support for OpenStack.

Well, what do you know? It has support for Firewall[2]! Yay!

Based on the fact that we have a spec for a v2 API - the question
becomes - how do we not break all this?

I see that LBaaS went the route of

v1 api = "/lb"
v2 api = "/lbaas"



So - I guess we take the same route with FwaaS - maybe have the endpoint
at "/fwaas" and then hopefully we can implement microversioning[3]? That
way, we never have to make another endpoint like "/firewall" if we come up with a v3 API in the 2020s.
