It is used to listen on the 'metering' topic ... but I'm not entirely
sure why.

        # Set ourselves up as a separate worker for the metering data,                                                                                                                                             
        # since the default for service is to use create_consumer().                                                                                                                                               
            'ceilometer.collector.' + cfg.CONF.metering_topic,

The best guess I can come up for this is that we want to use a
non-default worker pool so that third party listeners can use the
default worker pool.
