configure range request limits via conf file

Registered by Daniel Hsueh on 2015-01-08

https://github.com/openstack/swift/commit/4d23a0fcf5faa6339a1a58fcbdab8687a6c88feb introduced a limit of 50 ranges per GET request in openstack-swift 2.2.0

I propose that this limit (and possibly the nonascending and overlap limits) be configurable via conf file and read on server startup.

I propose 416 response returned when the limits are exceeded should also include the type and current value of the limit triggered.
