Cool, that sounds good to me.

Right now, we embed special fields in the serialized version of the
object, such as "nova_object.name" (like the VERSION_KEY stuff does
with "oslo.version"). Should we go ahead and use "oslo" in such things
as we're cooking this up in nova so that the move to oslo is easy?
