Store multiple formats of an image

Registered by Arnaud Legendre on 2014-02-14

In the basic import conversion of image format [1], Glance will not store the bits of the image uploaded. It will only store the bits of the image in the target format.
With this blueprint, the user should be able to store the image uploaded (qcow2) and the target format (vmdk) as locations of an image.
These formats will have different checksums and sizes: this is why this blueprint requires progress on this blueprint [2].
The alternative would be to leverage the artifact work [3] to have each format as a piece of an artifact.
