New debconf template for Nova and Neutron
I wish to add the below new Debconf template in Nova (re-wrapped for
sending by email):
_Description: Metadata proxy shared secret:
When using Neutron to handle the networking, VM instances retrive their
metadata information through the Neutron metadata agent, which serves
as a proxy to the Nova metadata server.
To protect communication between the Neutron metadata proxy agent and
the Nova metadata REST API server, communications are protected using
a password shared between Neutron and Nova. Please enter this
password. Note that the the same password should be used when setting
up the neutron-metadata-agent package.
The same template will be added to the neutron-metadata-agent package,
replacing "neutron-metadata-agent" by "nova-common" on the last sentence.
Please review the wording above and let me know if it's ok or not.

P.S: Obviously, this will *not* be included in Jessie.
