Ken, I have a question about this. The end goal is to move the service 
clients and so they must also be free of CONF references. But your 
current changes create a ServiceClient that still uses CONF in its 
constructor rather than taking the arguments. So I'm not sure what 
ServiceClient is adding. I also think whatever class the service clients 
are inheriting cannot contain CONF values?

I was assuming the final arrangement would be something like, using 
neutron as an example:

tempest_lib.RestClient(all needed args)
   tempest_lib.NeutronClient(all needed args to super)
      tempest.NeutronClient(pass CONF values to super)

and where the tempest_lib neutron client would be used by neutron tests 
either through inheritance or delegation. Is that different than your
