ok so from what i can tell this is probably O(n) as it iterates once
over all pools, but that info should be in memory and not too bad imo
(and since this is lspools there are some other calls here that are
likely in O(n)).

however, even if this rados command takes too long, it will time out
after 5 seconds and then no applications will be included in the
response. which is just the previous behavior and imo "safe".

some more detail below:

technically, one may argue this call is in O(n*m*k), with n being the
number of pools, m the number of applications and k the number of
metadata keys for the application. but m and k are very like very small
if not zero (e.g. for a default rbd pool m is one and k would be zero).
so more like O(n).

at least if i am reading this right:
