Glance Client should use "Expect: 100-continue" header during upload.

Registered by Sridevi Koushik on 2014-01-06

During upload, if the Auth token is expired, the glance client
unnecessarily uploads the chunks and fails at the end.
Instead, we could have a fail fast mechanism using the
100-continue handshake. Only if the client receives a 100 continue
from glance, it should continue uploading the chunks.
Otherwise, if a 401 is received, it should fetch a fresh auth
token and retry the request.

Whiteboard

Let's work to file this under python-glanceclient.

However, I think the blueprint makes a lot of sense. The way I'd like to see this go is to switch to python requests and use their 100-continue support. However, I cannot quite track down where they are with it.

Again, this should probably be filed under python-glanceclient.
