Kami opened a new pull request #1409: [WIP] Fix pagination in the "list_nodes()" method in
the GCE driver
   This pull request is an attempt to try to fix an issue reported in #515.
   ### Background / Problem Description
   Currently ``list_nodes()`` method only returns up to 500 nodes (which is a page size value
we use with our list requests and also a max page size limit set by Google).
   This is true either when we are requesting nodes for all the zones (aggregated request)
or when requesting nodes for a single zone.
   ### Proposed Fix
   This pull request fixes that by utilizing ``request_aggregated_items`` method in both scenarios
(when we are requesting nodes in all the zones and also when requesting nodes for a single
   I tested the change by setting ``maxResults`` in the ``request_aggregated_items`` method
to ``1`` and verified that all the pages are correctly retrieved since I don't have an account
with more than 500 instances to test it out.
   On a somewhat related note -  unless I'm missing something, it appears the same issue may
also exist with other "list" API endpoints when retrieving items for a specific zone and that
response contains more then max page size number of items (since we don't follow through pagination
when requesting items for a single zone).
   As you can see in the diff, this change also allowed me to simplify ``list_nodes()`` method.
If my assertion / observation above is correct, this would mean we can also simplify other
list methods.
   @erjohnso Please correct me if I'm wrong or missing something.
