Looks like we do have a cinder-tgt and a cinder-lio which we dont
actually use anywhere, so you are correct. The mariadb-galera /
percona-cluster elements are much more complex and active though, and
seem very likely to have issues with forgetting to or incorrectly
porting changes between them. It might also be a moot point if we end up
making it a default. :)
