Support for Google Compute Engine Image Families


Google Compute Engine has a new feature that allows one to specify an image using a "family". This will return the latest, non-deprecated image that has been created in the given project with that family attribute. This change adds support for using an image family in create_node and create_volume as well as a new method ex_get_image_from_family that will return an image resource from a family name.

LGTM @wrigri, could you squash commits please?

Add the ability to specify an "Image Family" for creating a node and/or
volume, and the ability to get an image object from a family name.
