os-collect-config speaks two HTTP API's: EC2 metadata and
CloudFormation. I am suggesting that it would be fairly easy to teach
it to also speak oslo.messaging. It currently doesn't have a two-way
communication method, but that is only because we haven't needed that.
It wouldn't be difficult at all to have responders instead of collectors
and send back a response after the command is run.
