Flavor selection is difficult with many flavors

Bug Description

If you have many flavors, the flavor option-select section of the Instance Launch modal becomes very difficult to use.

Due to the way that nova works, it is often necessary to create many flavors. For example, in our medium sized deployment, we have over 40 flavors: 4 machine types x 5 flavor sizes on each machine type x 2 different storage configurations = 40 flavors.

A table similar to the Admin-panel's Flavors page would be much more useful.
