[Sorry to harp on the naming issue.  But names are important, and we
can't change them once they're in the API ...]

After making the change I suggested above, it now feels a little strange
because "Pool" is gone from the name.  I'm starting to think
"*Discover[Storage]PoolSources*" is the only good choice.  It's rather
long, but makes it clear we're talking about storage pool sources (as
opposed to "storage sources", which feels a little ambiguous, or
"storage pools" which isn't accurate since they're not (yet) pools).

Sound ok?
