[openstack-dev] [neutron] Service VMs

For the upcoming Summit there are 3 sessions filed around "Service
VMs" in Neutron. After discussing this with a few different people,
I'd like to propose the idea that the "Service VM" work be moved out
of Neutron and into it's own project on stackforge. There are a few
reasons for this:

1. There is nothing Neutron specific about service VMs.
2. Service VMs can perform services for other OpenStack projects.
3. The code is quite large and may be better served being inside it's
own project.

Moving the work out of Neutron and into it's own project would allow
for separate velocity for this project, and for code to be shared for
the Service VM work for things other than Neutron services.

I'm starting this email thread now to get people's feedback on this
and see what comments other have. I've specifically copied Isaku and
Bob, who both filed summit sessions on this and have done a lot of
work in this area to date.
