So the tempest patches for ceilometer are still not a coherent set. Can 
you please mark anything that is not ready for review as Work In 
Progress, or abandon until there is really something to review?

Also, having looked at a few of these, I am confused about the usage of 
"ceilometer", "metering", "telemetry". Is there an explanation for the 
context in which each of these terms is to be used?
