Make Resource Types Pluggable

Registered by Chris St. Pierre on 2015-11-30

Rally's current type resolution subsystem (``rally.task.types``) isn't
easily pluggable, is tied to OpenStack, and cannot handle resources
that must be resolved by the context of each iteration rather than the
context of the subtask. This spec aims to solve all three problems.
