I didn't mean the incubator, I meant like oslo.* libs that we've spun 
out already.

Correct. Just to understand what the libs live under. Basically taskflow 
is getting deeply integrated into projects in the same way oslo.* libs 
are, and as such, given it has non trivial requirements of it's own, we 
have to treat it like all the other OpenStack components and 
symmetrically gate on it.

That will guaruntee you can't release a taskflow library that can break 
OpenStack, because we'll be testing every commit, which is goodness.

Definitely think doug should weigh in as well.
