solution (no rackspace,azure yet) - mainly for any initial thoughts/comments. One issue is
the EC2 API doesn't offer any obvious way for updating metadata without re-uploading the blob
(i.e. you can only put the metadata when you create a blob). So it might not be possible to
offer CRUD for metadata - rather they are just a property of the blob (sorry if this is obvious,
i had been expecting to be able to update/delete individual metadata - this may be possible
for the other providers haven't investigated yet),
