Given that we've similar needs for retries and race avoidance in and
between glance, nova, cinder and neutron, and a need or orchestrate
between at least these three (arguably other infrastructure projects
too, I'm not trying to get into specifics), maybe the answer is to put
that logic in a new service, that talks to those four, and provides a
nice simple API, while allowing the cinder, nova etc APIs to remove
things like internal retries?
