Does Yakumo provide some plugin mechanism, or do you plan to include and
all OpenStack services in Yakumo?

It's not clear to me what is the specific use case this library aims to
Is it meant for application development or testing or both?
What are its benefit compared to openstacksdk and tempest clients?
