So while I have been on vacation, I've been thinking about Solum and Heat.

And I have some lingering questions in my mind that make me question 
whether a new server project is actually necessary at all, and whether 
we really should just be targeting innovation and resources towards the 
Heat project.

What exactly is Solum's API going to control that is not already 
represented in Heat's API and the HOT templating language? At this 
point, I'm really not sure, and I'm hoping that we can discuss this 
important topic before going any further with Solum. Right now, I see so 
much overlap that I'm questioning where the differences really are.
