I have seen this happen in a variety of use cases.  It does not bother me 
that security group names are scoped to tenants; other kinds of names also 
lack various kinds of uniqueness.  I am really just raising a tiny, 
peripheral rant here.  When I go in as admin to look at a problem, `nova 
show` identifies a Compute Instance's security group in a useless way.  If 
only I could make `nova show` tell me the UUID instead of, or in addition 
to, the security group's name then I would be happy.
