load data from object storage via official swift client

IMHO, the current code snippet for loading data from swift container is confusing. I understand those python code is a vanilla implementation of keystone v3 authentication plus getting object from swift without any third party library.


Comparing to notebook server on EMR, it loads data on S3 via AWS CLI, which is consistent with the AWS S3 usage.

    I saw it starts to use s3 python client to load dataset from IBM object storage service now via a service id credential. good design!
