    New -k/--insecure command line option

    Fix for bug 929591.

    Change glance to require server certificate validation
    by default when using https. The standard system
    CA file will be used if available (and an alternative was not

    The --insecure option can be used by clients to skip server
    certificate validation if appropriate.

    * This change will impact Nova clients accessing glance over https.
      If the standard CA file is not suitable they will need to provide
      a CA file or else create an 'insecure' glance client.
    * Accesses to a https registry server must now perform server
      certificate validation.
    * If the package which provides the standard
      system CA file is installed then that file will be used by default.
      It probably makes sense for the glance package to have a
      dependency on whichever package provides the default CA bundle.
      (In Ubuntu this is 'ca-certificates')
