Bytemark-Client v3.4!
Sorry, we somehow managed to forget to release v3.3!

Changes since v3.2:

New Features:
* Discs can be moved between servers using the `update disc` command and the
  new `--new-server` flag
* Grant command can now grant privileges to users using api keys
* API keys can be used for authentication (with access restricted to
  Bytemark Cloud Server's APIs)
* API keys can be managed with the `add api key`, `delete api key`, `show
  api keys`, and `grant privilege` (with --api-key flag) and `revoke
  privilege` commands.

* The `--recursive` flag is no longer required to delete non-empty groups.
* `migrate server` now outputs the VM's hostname correctly when the
  migration has been started.
* The .tar.gz files available on are now gzipped and not
  merely pretending to be.

New Admin Features:
* `show dependant servers` command for viewing servers on a head, tail or
  storage pool at a given time
* `show dependant discs` command for viewing discs on a head, tail or
  storage pool at a given time
* `add vm default` has been added, allowing staff to create
  publicly-accessible server configurations for use in tutorials, 1-click
  installs, etc.

Version 3.2

`--account <account>` can be specified to list all servers on an account.
* `profiles` and `scripting` have been updated to match the 3.0+ updates.

* `update config --account <account>` no longer fails if a billing account
cannot be found for the named account (but a Bytemark Cloud account can)
* `--output-format` is no longer clobbered by `--table-fields`
* `--output-format=list` now produces a list with no lines between columns,
nor between the header and the body of the list
