Apparently flavors are really going to be uuids in the v1.1 OSAPI.

So now instead of just knowing that a 2 Gig instance is flavor ID 2 I get to do something like this:

  FLAVOR_ID=$(nova flavor-list | grep 2048 | cut -f 2 -d "|" | tr -d ' ')

Not really what I'd consider to be a step forward in usability. :(

Actually, just making it a string is fine. The spec doesn't require us to use uuids, just strings. I've got a branch in progress to do this.

    Convert instancetype.flavorid to string

    Fixes bug 861666. This also removes some direct database access
    in favor of using nova.compute.instance_types throughout the code.
