remove legacy query interface
with the introduction of the api, the query interface is no longer needed.

I want to make sure what needs to be done here. Are we looking at refactoring ssh_using_foreman, or foreman.rb (or both) to work with the API? Or maybe you are thinking we can just get rid of both since foremancli now can do everything it can?

Ohad, looking at the API docs, I'm not sure if there is a way to query the API for a list of hosts with certain puppetclasses http://theforeman.org/projects/foreman/wiki/API Am I missing something?
The other piece where you query for a list of hosts that match certain facts, seems to be implemented in the REST API as "/facts/<factname>/values"
However the ssh_using_foreman scriptallows ONE OR MORE facts in the query: "-f, --facts fact=x,fact=y.. one or more facts to filter the host list" I am not aware of how to do this in the API either.

I ended up using the GUI to generate a query, and tailed the production log to find how the searches are encoded, and found this as an example: https://foreman/hosts?search=+class++%3D++base%3A%3Amonitor-only++or++class++%3D++apache2%3A%3Agb
You don't have this more cleanly documented somewhere or a code example, do you?

There may be some weird behavior with "OR" that I think is a bug, but "AND" seems to be working. (For future reference the search I did that triggered the bug was facts.hostname=redmine or facts.hostname=dev1, I will be doing further testing and open a bug report.)

Reminder to update http://theforeman.org/projects/foreman/wiki/Query_Interface once we make these changes.
