I've done this occasionally using Apache as the endpoint and
rewriting/forwarding URLs to the native servers.  As we add APIs to using
mod_wsgi this only becomes easier.  It's not doable directly in DevStack
yet, although maybe we should convert the tls-proxy service from using stud
to Apache, then a single endpoint could be an option on top of that.

Also this would tremendously simplify using JSON Home from the client
standpoint as there should then be only one doc to cache and parse. And if
not that, at least getting all of the API versions in one round trip.
