For the simplest case of puppet infrastructure configuration, which is a
single puppetmaster with one environment, you cannot have multiple versions
of a single puppet module installed. This means you absolutely cannot have
an openstack infrastructure depend on having different versions of a single
module installed. In your example, a user would not  be able to use both
puppet-nova and puppet-designate since they are using different versions of
the puppet-oslo module.

When we put out puppet modules, we guarantee that version X.x.x of a given
module works with the same version of every other module, and this proposal
would totally break that guarantee.
