It's modelled as several layers: direct REST API access, functional
access (similar to what our classic python-*client libs provided),
and an opinionated layer with more business logic and plaster over
cloud-specific interoperability problems (formerly the Shade library
which grew out of Nodepool). Callers can mix-n-match the layers,
like use a higher level call to get a Keystone token and then use it
to authenticate REST API methods.
