I had always wanted this to happen. It is really frustrating when nova
throws wierd python exceptions and difficult to comprehend log messages.
If the developers do agree to clean up the interface I would suggest they
make use of some well knows protocol (mpls/rsvp) to do this, instead of
relying on custom south-bound api calls.
