Bug Description

Openstack Keystone supports LDAP backend but the keystone package does not install python-ldap it as a dependency, requiring it to be installed seperately.


* User will be able to install keystone and use LDAP backend without having to manually/separately install python-ldap

[Test Case]

* check python-ldap is not installed
* apt-get install keystone
* check python-ldap is installed

[Regression Potential]

 * none
