Horizon Quotas Rework

Registered by Eric Peterson

The Horizon quota code is a mess that needs redesign. Goals should be that quotas are easy to plug and play - i.e. add and remove as needed within a deployment.

[Sep 11, 2018 -- amotoki] I completed all items I mentioned below at Dec 9, 2017. I believe this can be marked as implemented.

[Dec 9, 2017 -- amotoki]
I would like to take over this blueprint to achieve the following goals:
* Use neutron quota detail API to retrieve neutron resource usages (instead of list operations)
* Use neutron default quota API to fetch default quotas
* Push away nova-network related quotas (security_group and floating IP) and use neutron quota names consistently (at now nova-network and neutron quota names are used mixedly and it decreases the code readability a lot)
* Merge usages.quotas.tenant_limit_usages and tenant_quota_usages. They are two similar and the difference is what backend APIs are used (limits vs quotas).
* Some refactoring on usages/quotas.py

Work Items

Work items:
The reading of quotas, much of it centralized in the existing usage python module. : INPROGRESS
The writing/setting of quotas, which is more in the project edit screen. This code is likely a second pass.: TODO
The project modification screen might need to be split into separate screens / tools for quota management and for role membership. This is TBD, but the thinking is that the current project edit screen is more complex than we would like. Splitting into separate tools also makes it so the quota tool can see more changes / work with less fear for the impact on the role membership tool. : TODO
