Anything against doing it via `rbd -p pool namespace ls`? AFAICT there is no lightweight command to list namespaces via `rados`. Only thing I found was listing all objects in the pool and fetching used namespaces from that output: `rados -p rbd ls --format json` but that is an expensive operation.

One thing though that we should consider: so far adding an external RBD storage worked even if the auth keyring wasn't present. The storage would not get activated until the keyring file was present. But one could still do that after adding the storage config. With this check we would make it a requirement to first place the keyring file and then add the storage config.
