Limit the number of instances that a user can spawn in a time window

Registered by Jean-Daniel Bonnetot on 2015-09-08

Rate-limits can limit API calls, but on POST */servers, there is a possibility to specify max_count and ask large number of instances in a very short time.
As operator, I want to rate-limit the real instance creation, not only the API calls.
