Well the current "horizon" on Pypi is "The OpenStack Dashboard" +
horizon(_lib) included

If the future "horizon" on pypi is "openstack_dashboard" alone, it would
still pull "horizon_lib" as a dependency, so it would not brake the

So indeed the "horizon" package itself in Pypi would not have
horizon(_lib) in it anymore, but he "pip install horizon" would pull
everything due to the dependency horizon will have with horizon_lib.

I find this the least confusing issue and the "horizon" package on Pypi
would still be seen as "The OpenStack Dashboard" like it is now. We
would only add an "horizon_lib" package on Pypi.
Therefore existing third-party "requirements.txt" would not brake
because they would pull horizon_lib with horizon. and they would still
import the proper module. Every backwards compatibility (requirements
and module) is therefore preserved.
