i think we should follow up with the packagers. if i understand 
correctly, the location of the code is not known from a user pov, it's 
the packagers that build the appropriate packages for them to use.

if from packagers pov, they just need to work against Aodh, then i would 
lean more to removing alarming from Ceilometer repo asap to avoid 
maintaining duplicate code bases and the eventual diversion of the two.

i would think/hope the experience from end user doesn't actually change. 
ie. all the same packaged services remain.
