I am not sure I like diverging from python-novaclient, I was thinking
more of a external repo that is full of these style commands:

So if you are an admin / ops / support, you install an extra set of
things, an a whole bunch of extra params light up. Those commands
should then just call into novaclient to make any API calls (hmm,
maybe thats a dependency loop).
