Ideally (when we remove all the workarounds), the code should be
dependent only on public APIs and oslo, but for the first few releases
when some additional functionality is exposed in Nova for us to remove
workarounds we might be dependent on particular releases - or if it's
done via extensions or versioning and we can see what we're dealing with
we also can be independent in terms of releases.
