About the New API Rate Limit

We're excited to move from daily rate limits to hourly.  This means every QWEB API (VM/PC) goes from an approximately once every 5 minute call to about once every 12 seconds IF NEEDED.  Enabling use cases like checking the scan list API or enabling Continuous Integration pipelines will be a lot easier from now on.
