This is the statement that makes me trip over, and I don't understand why
GBP and Neutron Core need to be 'integrated' together as they have. Policy
decision points can be decentralized from the system under scrutiny, we
don't need to have one giant monolithic system that does everything; it's
an architectural decision that would make difficult to achieve
composability and all the other good -ilities of software systems.
