Bug Description


When using a custom keystoneauth plugin that does not return os_user_id, os_project_domain_id, os_project_domain_name, os_user_domain_id or os_user_domain_name from its get_options() function, python-novaclient will fail with a runtime error when trying to use it.

I believe a good fix would be to amend the _append_global_identity_args functiion in to add parser.set_defaults() calls for each of the missing arguments.
