These are the old project-specific CLIs, note that the 'keystone' command
only supports v2 auth today and will be removed entirely in the
keystoneclient 2.0 release.

One of the things I have tried very hard to do is make it so users do NOT
need to know which API handles a given command.  For higher-layer projects
that is less of a concern I suppose, and that was done long before anyone
thought that 20+ APIs would be handled in a single command set.

Namespacing has come up and is something we need to discuss further, either
within the 'openstack' command itself or by using additional top-level
command names.  This is one of the topics for discussion in Tokyo, but has
already started on the ML for those that will not be present.

No matter how we end up handling the namespacing issue, I will still
strongly insist that project code names not be used.  I know some plugins
already do this today and we can't stop anyone else from doing it, but it
leads to the same sort of inconsistency for users that the original project
CLIs had. It reduces the value of a single (or small set of) CLI for the
user to deal with.
