Yeah as soon as I sent the original email I realized that I was munging 
PaaS and orchestration services/libraries and probably shouldn't have, 
that wasn't my intent. I just tend to lump them together in my head. My 
point was trying to see if I'm missing a change in people's opinions 
about really wanting Nova to be doing more orchestration than we expect.
