Attaching extra-spec to vol-type using Cinder py-client

Hello,

I am trying to create and type-set some parameters to a volume-type as follows:

cinder type-create nfs
cinder type-key nfs set volume_backend_name=myNFSBackend

The same thing I want to achieve through python client.

I can create the type as follows:

from cinderclient import client 
cinder = client.Client('2', 'admin', 'pw', 'demo', 'http://127.0.0.1:5000/v2.0', service_type="volumev2")

cinder.volume_types.create('nfs')

However how can I associate the extra-spec through python-client code to the 'nfs' volume (same impact as the CLI 'cinder type-key nfs set volume_backend_name=myNFSBackend' does)?

The 'set_keys' etc. methods are there in the "v2/volume_types.py" in python-cinderclient codebase. How to call it? (it's part of VolumeType class, not VolumeTypeManager).

Any help would be great.

Thanks, Pradip
