Yep, I saw and +2d, thanks. I think it's pretty early in kilo testing
and since you don't *have* to do this for kilo, it's not really been an

The point of this is that it's *not* done as a migration. Doing this
transition as a DB migration would require hours of downtime for large
deployments while rolling over this migration. Instead, the code in kilo
can handle the data being in either place, and converts it on update.
The nova-manage command allows background conversion (hence the
max-number limit for throttling) to take place while the system is running.
Thanks for fixing up nova-manage and for making T-H aware!
