[openstack-dev] [Neutron] Deprecating the use_namespaces option - Now's the time to speak up!

Hello everyone,

The use_namespaces option in the L3 and DHCP Neutron agents controls if you
can create multiple routers and DHCP networks managed by a single L3/DHCP agent,
or if the agent manages only a single resource.

Are the setups out there *not* using the use_namespaces option? I'm curious as
to why, and if it would be difficult to migrate such a setup to use namespaces.

I'm asking because use_namespaces complicates Neutron code for what I gather
is an option that has not been relevant for years. I'd like to deprecate the option
for Kilo and remove it in Liberty.
