I read this as you saying there was some way that the in-band marker
mapping could be leaked to the user via the REST API. However, if you
meant to just offer up the REST API's pagination as an example that we
could follow in the nova-manage CLI, requiring users to provide the
marker each time, then ignore this part:

As I said in my reply to gibi, I don't think making the user keep track
of the marker is a very nice UX for a management CLI, nor is it as
convenient for something like puppet to run as it has to parse the
(grossly verbose) output each time to extract that marker.
