It's not something I've tested, or want to encourage, but currently,
outside of gluster, Vdsm may run behind a fancy NAT as a virtual server.
I.e., its local undress may be utterly different from the address used
by Engine.

I'd like to keep having this flexibility, and not to assume otherwise.

Why does glusterHostsList need to return the ip of the management
network? The client that issued this verb has to know that IP in the
first place.

I notice that the idiom "_getLocalIpAddress() or _getGlusterHostName()"
is used all too often in vdsm/gluster/cli.py.

How about changing the Vdsm/Engine API so that the string "localhost" is
returned instead? Then, Engine can replace it with whatever it seems
