I'm not sure what you mean.  Nova, Neutron, Keystone, Glance, and Heat
(at least) are all using the oslo-config-generator tool for this.  There
might be some slight variation in how they call it, but they are using it.

I only vaguely recall having discussions about this with Cinder, so I'd
be interested in a refresher around why Cinder didn't want to do it the
same way.  I kind of considered it a solved problem.

For reference:
Nova: https://github.com/openstack/nova/blob/master/tox.ini#L90
Neutron: https://github.com/openstack/neutron/blob/master/tox.ini#L198
which calls
Keystone: https://github.com/openstack/keystone/blob/master/tox.ini#L148
