When people just run these tests, they won't need their own credentials;
but if they want to add to them, they'll also need to rerecord, in which
case credentials are needed.

The longer term solution should be what we discussed earlier on IRC:
      * only keep dummy credentials in the git repo; use these to run
      * when recording (the goal is to make it easy and safe for others
        to rerecord)
              * use proper 'live' credentials from
                ~/.deltacloud/config.yml for recording
              * replace Basic Auth headers in recorded data with headers
                based on dummy creds (since Basic Auth contains the
              * tell VCR to ignore other params/headers that are based
                on auth data, but don't contain the actual creds in any
                form (e.g., EC2's token)

For now, we can live with what we've been doing, though it's not very
friendly to others adding to the tests.
