Right, devstack's primary mission is still providing development 
environments to developers. We reuse it in QA and Infra, but it's kind 
of a different beast.

So for now it just remains what it is, which I think is fine. I think 
it's good to be pragmatic about Programs and only fit the git trees that 
naturally fit into them, and just be really concerned that every git 
tree we carry has to be owned by a program.

Sometimes we have useful code just because people are useful and doing 
good things for the community. I'd much rather let that bloom as is then 
spend a lot of time ensuring it fits into an existing program.
