i18n enablement (partial)

Registered by James Carey on 2014-06-03

This BluePrint/Spec proposes completing the enablement of i18n
(internationalization) support for Nova.

Internationalization implementation has been an on-going effort in OpenStack
during recent releases.

During the Icehouse release, the foundational support for internationalization
was merged into Nova. Specifically the update of Oslo's gettextutils and the
pre-existing work of explicitly importing '_' from gettextutils.

To finalize this work in Juno we need to enable the "lazy" translation
provided in gettextutils and change how messages are manipulated. Enablement
of lazy translation will allow end users to not only have logs produced in
multiple languages, but adds the ability for REST API messages to also be
returned in the language chosen by the user. This functionality is important
to support the use of OpenStack by the international community.
