Comments on the patch:
- HOST = ''  ---- Is this a long term DNS name for your service?  It seems

>> This is the current address used for the IBM Developer Cloud while it's in beta.
 I expect a more permanent address in the future.

- in parse_error, it raises InvalidCredsException(self.error), but self.error is essentailly
HTTPResponse.reason.  Is there more data that can be parsed out of the body?
>> Great catch -- a more descriptive reason is now given for authentication issues (when

- in create_node:
  - it uses as an optional kwarg publicKey.  It should also look for an auth parameter with
the type of NodeAuthSSHKey, and then use that if present.
>> Modified to only use the public key in the 'auth' parameter if provided.

  - Any examples of what configurationData would be used for?  Its kinda an opaque blob, and

>> The 'configurationData' is a dictionary of image-specific configuration parameters

to be the ISO 3166 country code.
>> Done.
