nova setup installs boto-1.9b, which is incompatible with euca2ools

Bug Description

As seen in mtaylor and smoser's conversation at [1], in devstack where 'sudo develop' is run for nova, euca2ools are then broken. The immediate fallout is euca-describe-images and other euca2ools fail when it does 'import boto.auth_handler'.

demonstratable with a simple:
 python -c 'import boto.auth_handler'

the euca2ools in oneiric version (2.0.0~bzr464) and all 2.0.0 releases depend on boto 2.0.

just found, after 'pip install -U boto' (and getting 2.1.1), I see:
