While I like the idea of having dynamic VM consolidation capabilities
somewhere in OpenStack, it doesn't belongs in Nova. This service should
live outside of Nova and just consume Nova's REST APIs. If there is some
piece of information that this service would need that isn't made available
via the REST API, we can fix that.
