Creating a FileRemote and RpmRemote with the same name raises an error
Steps to reproduce:
$ http :/pulp/api/v3/remotes/file/file/ name=rebecca_black url="http://friday/" $ http :/pulp/api/v3/remotes/rpm/rpm/ name=rebecca_black url="http://friday/"
The problem is that uniqueness across base fields on Master/Detail models are scoped universally instead of per type.
1. Keep it the way it is with universal uniqueness. This is what Pulp 2 does (for repos at least).
2. Use unique_together to enforce unique constraints per pulp_type
3. Remove these unique constraints completely and allow for instance dupe FileRemote names
 I think django 2.2+ actually recommends using Constraints now: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.2/ref/models/options/#django.db.models.Options.constraints
In ansible modules for pulp, this name is used as a natural key for entities. So some kind of uniqueness is desparately needed there in order to describe remotes (and other entities) in an idempotent way.
I don't really care much about 1 vs. 2, but please do not use option 3.
