This script scans a directory for files with companion '.json' files, then loads 
the data from the file, and attaches the .json contents using the 'extended_metadata'
system in the library

Sample call:
python <api_key> <api_url> /data/folder "API Imports"

NOTE:  The upload method used requires the data library filesystem upload allow_library_path_paste
