I think it is good compromise. Thanks Ryu!

I understand the CLI will belong to the external part. I much prefer to have
it in a separate project rather than into the plugin. Even if the code is

If you will want to just do midonet calls for debugging or check the MidoNet
virtual infrastructure, it will be cleaner to install it without
dependencies than
dragging the whole neutron project (networking-midonet depends on neutron).
