I think that someone who doesn't know what a tenant is in OpenStack
should either give-up using it or read some more documentation. So I'd
be fine with simply removing "(project)".

Just a bit of background here. In OpenStack, a "tenant" is an entity
that contains one or more username/password couples. It's typically the
tenant that will be used for billing. Having more than one
username/password is very helpful in larger organization.

In OpenStack, a tenant is a synonym of a project. I don't think it was a
rename, I saw both. For example, the OpenStack dashboard (Horizon) shows
"projects" and not "tenants" in the admin interface:

Or this one too:

I'm cc-ing the OpenStack list just in case I'm wrong. :)
