like metrics and tracing to more up to date standards.[1]

I think the ideas repo is a good place for people to put up basic
outlines for this [2].

In short, some of the ideas bouncing around my head for this:

- consolidate agents on nodes
- see how we can leverage HTTP / gRPC / random point to point standard
   for control plane  -> node (both hypervisor and VM) communications
- OpenTracing
- Metrics

I know I will be lucky to get one of these complete in my term, but
getting the ground work in place for even one or two of these would be
