    Enhance get_list_of_xx calls by allowing for filter by network id

    Enhance get_list_of_xx calls by allowing for filter by network id
    While developing utils using libcloud, I found that there were several routines in the
LoadBalancer driver that just did not seem right. Specifically, these were the "get a list
of XXX"-type routines. I felt (and others agreed) that it was "less than ideal" that these
routines all defaulted to "return EVERYTHING from your company across ALL networks". Initially,
I assumed that it would filter by network (since I had already told the LB Driver what my
network Id was. However, in testing my util, I found that it return LoadBalancers (in my case)
from networks that I had never heard of.
    Therefore, I created this PR. The interface changes are BACKWARDS compatible.
    For example:
    def list_balancers(self) ==> def list_balancers(self, network_id=None)
    This code has been tested to show that:
    by default, the original all-encompassing lists are returned.
    using the new parameter, a list that only applies to the given network id is returned.
    I do have several more tests that I want to run. I won't be able to get to those until
8/31/16 though.
    Checklist (tick everything that applies)
    I will get to these (and update the PR as needed) on the 31st.
    I just wanted to get you this code as soon as possible.
     Code linting (required, can be done after the PR checks)
     ICLA (required for bigger changes)
    NOTE: We took this "concept" and applied to all the places that WE needed. This may apply
to the compute and backup drivers as well.
