Server metadata

Registered by Dan Prince on 2011-02-04

Support the ability to store and retrieve metadata associated with Servers via the Openstack API.

See http://docs.rackspacecloud.com/servers/api/v1.0/cs-devguide-20110112.pdf (page 23).

From the API spec:
"Custom cloud server metadata can also be supplied at launch time. This metadata is stored in the API system where it is retrievable by querying the API for server status. The maximum size of the metadata key and value is each 255 bytes and the maximum number of key-value pairs that can be supplied per server is 5"
