In the existing novaclient code for show/rebuild, the --minimal option just
skips doing the lookups on the flavor/image as described in the help text. It
doesn't affect the other ~40 fields in the instance. After the new microversion
we already have the flavor details without doing the flavor lookup so I thought
it made sense to display them.
I suppose an argument could be made that for consistency we should keep the
output with --minimal similar to what it was before. If we want to go that
route I'm happy to do so.
