Bug Description

Update keys rather than delete and then create with the same name again which will cause temporary outage.

"There are some issues with updating existing keypairs, such as leading a user to think that the updated keypair will be injected into the existing guest VM, which it won't. We also don't have a PUT on flavors for similar reasons.
