Well, users would typically install Horizon on a "controler" machine,
with everything installed there, and then specialized compute, network
or storage node. This is a very common practice. In such a case, if you
want to debug anything, you'd use python-openstackclient cli on the
controler machine, and probably at some point will want to type
"openstack help". So very likely, this *will* hit our users.

That's a very good idea.
