I also have this question. The glance API is one of the most fundamental 
and basic APIs. You pretty much can't do anything useful on a cloud 
without touching it.

That said - it's not like glare couldn't also do those things - but I'd 
need to understand some real specifics about what a cloud switching from 
glance to glare looks like to the end user.

Also, we have a new upload API designed for glance that took a LARGE 
amount of wrangling to get consensus on. I'd also want to know what this 
situation looks like in glare, if image upload in glare supports all of 
the use-cases that we figured out image upload in glance needed to 
support. AND - there are folks who want import-from which was removed 
between glance v1 and v2. Does glare support something in this area?
