ceph-deploy: create config push option
Neil needs to fill in more specific requirements here, but for a starting point, something like:
"ceph-deploy rbd-client <host> <client-name> <pool-images-are-in>"
to get-or-create a client key with <client-name> that has the permissions it needs to access RBD images in the pool <pool-images-are-in>.

The ceph-deploy admin command sets up a host with admin keys, so it has full permissions on the cluster. Presumably you'll want to generate clients with more limited keys. I suppose perhaps we could add functionality to create reasonable-default RGW or RBD keys.

Sage was less in favour of having ceph-deploy handle creation and key deployment, which I think I now agree with. However, we did discuss having a 'config push' option which could deploy a new ceph.conf to the cluster and could be used with clients too.
This is actually quite important as after the graceful copy of the initial ceph.conf to the mon/osd nodes, you are back to manual scp'ing ceph.conf every time you change it.
