landscape handler doesn't set tags line correctly with only one tag

Bug Description

If you have only one tag set in cloud-init, like this:

    url: ""
    ping_url: ""
    account_name: "andreas"
    computer_title: "cloud-instance"
    include_manager_plugins: "ScriptExecution"
    script_users: "ALL"
    tags: [ cloud ]

The client config file gets generated like this:
url =
ping_url =
data_path = /var/lib/landscape/client
script_users = ALL
include_manager_plugins = ScriptExecution
tags = cloud, <-----
computer_title = cloud-instance
account_name = andreas

That extra comma at the end of "cloud" breaks this feature and the registration request on the server ends up having no tags at all.

The easy work around is just to make 'tags' a string in the input, right?
If that works, I think i'd prefer just documenting that rather than explicitly handling single item strings.

Changed in cloud-init:
importance: Undecided → Low

Yes, that works, just document that it's comma-separated.
