Make Eventlet Optional

Registered by Jamie Lennox on 2013-05-10

Eventlet is not necessarily a good fit for keystone. The event driven model works best where the application is spending a lot of time waiting for requests to finish which works well for nova and others that may have long periods of waiting on machines to come up. Keystone is a more traditional web application that could benefit from the optimizations of apache/nginx and as we look to add more encryption that is not well supported by eventlet we should provide at least the option of running on other WSGI servers.
