Also, I think we are making assumptions too early (I mentioned in this thread), if Skyline team
deny doing OpenStack way then it is better to discuss all these points otherwise, we should just wait
for them to improve the things and even better is that we (who need this project or think it is an interested one)
should be part of their team and improve things.
