+1 on more collaboration :). I think the general strategy of finding
what program in OpenStack fits the features you'd like to contribute,
and then working with that program to get the features into it - as a
new project for the program, or as patches to an existing project, or
even as a replacement implementation of the project - is exactly the
right approach to break down the silos and make your stuff generally
available and something we're all collaborating on. The specific
examples you gave also make sense to me.

Let me know if/when there are further or more detailed discussions we
need to have - I'll be more than happy to participate!
