Hey James,

well as long as we end up with possibility to have control over it in 
the Icehouse release , I am fine with that.
(The 'control' I tried to explain closer in response to Robert's e-mail).

As for the milestone approach:

 From implementation point of view, there is already some magic in 
openstack, so it might be easier to start with that already existing 
magic, add manual support then and then enhance the magic to much 
smarter approach.
