I am okay to drop nova-network feature in Pike.
More generally, can we horizon team say the following?
A feature deprecated in a back-end project is automatically
deprecated in Horizon
and a feature in horizon will be dropped if a corresponding support
is dropped in
a back-end project and/or its support library (like python bindings)
even though horizon may provide an extended supports.
