I'd like to see this job running in the grenade check queue so we can watch it
there, and trace back to anything that affects us in unexpected ways. As Sean
points out, it should not be made voting in grenade's check queue.

It _should_ be made voting in Ironic's queue as soon as we have gathered
stability data for it. I'd love to see that get turned on in a week. With the
current patch volume, I think we'll be able to get plenty of stability data in
that time.
