A standalone heat server which acts on multiple external OpenStacks

Registered by Steve Baker on 2013-07-19

Building on https://blueprints.launchpad.net/heat/+spec/heat-standalone, this allows heat to run without any configured keystone endpoint.

All actions will be performed using whatever keystone endpoint and credentials are passed to the request. Tasks include:
- changing authpassword middleware to take the keystone endpoint from the request header rather than config
- providing a way for the cfn and cloudwatch pipelines to find out what keystone endpoint to use for incoming signal and watch data

Whiteboard

(shardy) Wiki page describing how this will work would be good, so set Definition to "Drafting", also since we have *way* too many BPs for h3, pushing this out to Icehouse - we can pull it back if we end up having time to do it, but lets focus on getting heat-standalone done first?

(stevebaker) I've created a wiki spec and assigned this to potential new contributor Ben Nemec.
