I'll try to avoid revisiting points other folks have made in this
thread, but feel obliged to highlight that "the community" does not
possess a hive mind and the idea that it "decides" things is
somewhat of a misunderstanding. I would characterize the focus on
the unified client as a consensus choice, but that doesn't mean that
everyone who has a stake in that choice is in agreement with the
direction (and with a community the size of OpenStack's, it's
unlikely everyone will ever agree unanimously on a topic).

Anything is possible. I don't personally consider that a likely
outcome, but I don't think anyone has a crystal ball which can tell
us that for certain.

I would take it as a sign to not ask the Glance contributors if you
run into a problem using the unified OpenStack client or SDK, and
try reproducing a problem with direct API interactions before
reporting a bug against the Glance service (to avoid being told that
they won't even look at it if your reproducer relies on OSC).
