I'm not mentioning OpenStack at all in the GUI, and Rackspace users
probably know about the auth URL:

My UI currenly shows the Rackspace US URL by default and it lets you
change to anything you want. It's my first stab to the problem.

I like A). When the user chooses "custom" he can enter the auth URL.

I don't think it's a good idea going with the "OpenStack" path if we're
not using OpenStack API (duplicity can't).

Kind regards,
