setAuth() should fail with error on non-204 response #25

For some reason, when the request initiated by setAuth() returns a non-204 response (ie. 401 due to invalid api key, etc), no error is being returned and authorized is being set to true, even though all the config items (serverUrl, setStorageUrl, cdnUrl, etc) are undefined because of the unauthorized response. This leads to unexpected behavior since you're assuming you have authorization.

Relevant lines (lib/cloudfiles/core.js:62-75):

request(authOptions, function (err, res, body) {
  if (err) {
    return callback(err); 

  self.authorized = true;
  self.config.serverUrl = res.headers['x-server-management-url'];
  self.config.cdnUrl = res.headers['x-cdn-management-url'];
  self.config.authToken = res.headers['x-auth-token'];
  self.config.storageToken = res.headers['x-storage-token']

  callback(null, res, self.config);

We should probably also be checking that the res.statusCode is equal to 200, as per the documentation for request:

var request = require('request');
request('', function (error, response, body) {
  if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
    console.log(body) // Print the google web page.
