So, glance-control was brought over to Glance from Swift, where much of
Glance's original daemonization and configuration code came from. AFAIK,
glance-control is used in the functional tests inside Glance, but if
those functional tests were reworked to spawn the glance-registry and
glance-api service daemons some other way, then I don't believe you will
find much production usage of glance-control for starting up the Glance

In Ubuntu packaging, glance-control is not used either:
