Either makes sense. If the glance team is going to continue maintaining
the code, it may make more sense to create a repo managed by glance-core.

One note, unless glance is using a namespace package, the name for the
library can't be glance.store, unfortunately. It wouldn't be difficult to
make that sort of structure work, though, so if you like the name it would
just mean some changes to glance and its packaging.
