      Description

      The ability to create, attach, detach, and delete block storage volumes (i.e. volumes in CloudStack, EBS in Amazon EC2) would be very useful in Libcloud, as this is a core functionality that is often used in (at least) these two environments.

        Initial implementation of driver-internal methods for CloudStack for creating and attaching volumes.

        I would be happy to contribute further than this initial patch (at least for CloudStack) if I can be given direction in how the external API should look.

        As far as the base API goes, you should start a discussion on a mailing list (dev@libcloud.apache.org). Block storage APIs are usually relatively simple which makes me think it shouldn't be too hard to come up with a good and simple base API.

        Patch comments:

        ex_create_volume and ex_attach_volume methods are missing docstrings for all the argument. Otherwise the patch looks good.
