The developer working on this was forced to rearrange priorities and 
there hasn't been anyone available among the active Cinder contributors 
to pick it up.  The current status of the effort is described here:


If you are interested in helping to drive this effort, feel free to 
suggest it as a topic for the Victoria virtual PTG:


There are several moving parts to this implementation, so it's probably 
worth assessing the current state of each to see how far we are from an 
implementation.  And if you are a software developer, or can influence 
some software developers, we would of course welcome development 
resources directed toward this effort.
