I believe Redhat patch it out. I don't think they should need to,
since we have explicit knobs for distros to use.

There is a raised concern about performance from the keystone CLI
thread, but I've not seen any followup to confirm that it was indeed
testing an *installed* CLI, not one running out of git.

I don't think its a bug in the applications.

Maybe someone from RedHat can file a bug on pbr describing what goes wrong?
