      Description

      The ``CreateServerOptions.metadata`` docs and method both say that only up to 5 key-value metadata pairs are allowed. This is a requirement of Rackspace cloud, but not of upstream OpenStack.

      There is a configurable metadata limit, the ``maxServerMeta`` nova absolute limit, but the default value is 128. The python nova client just sends requests up to nova though and the server enforces the limit.
