It's blocked in the sense that Nova can't yet use oslo.config because of
the aforementioned issue.

Yes, we've had (and continue to have) problems - no project has been
able to use new oslo.config features because of a series of python
packaging related issues.

If you're suggesting that e.g. the DB code in oslo-incubator should
avoid requiring oslo-config-1.2.0, that wouldn't help quantum much since
the dependency on 1.2.0 was added in order to enable behaviour that
quantum required.
