Big set of changes for deferred/scheduled/offline aggregates:
* I started out to add just deferred aggregates; those that are offline when starting an experiment (and marked in the apt_aggregates table as being deferable). When an aggregate is offline, we add an entry to the new apt_deferred_aggregates table, and periodically retry to start the missing slivers. In order to accomplish this, I split create_instance into two scripts, first part to create the instance in the DB, and the second (create_slivers) to create slivers for the instance. The daemon calls create_slivers for any instances in the deferred table, until all deferred aggregates are resolved. On the UI side, there are various changes to deal with allowing experiments to be partially create. For example used to wait till we have all the manifests until showing the topology. Now we show the topo on the first manifest, and then add them as they come in. Various parts of the UI had to change to deal with missing aggregates, I am sure I did not get them all. * And then once I had that, I realized that "scheduled" experiments was an "easy" addition, its just a degenerate case of deferred. For this I added some new slots to the tables to hold the scheduled start time, and added a started stamp so we can distinguish between the time it was created and the time it was actually started. Lots of data. On the UI side, there is a new fourth step on the instantiate page to give the user a choice of immediate or scheduled start. I moved the experiment duration to this step. I was originally going to add a calendar choice for termination, but I did not want to change the existing 16 hour max duration policy, yet.
