Ya, I think a 'default' of allowing in port 22 is sensible.

So the proposal would be:
create_node(...., inbound_tcp_ports=[22, 80, 443])

Would ensure that TCP ports 22, 80, and 443 are open, across all
drivers -- Other ports may be open to the node, but the api guarantee
is that at least the ports specified will be open to incoming traffic.

Should we throw an exception if a provider can't support that, but it
was requested by the API user?
