My decision (for Debian) is to move toward using:
- nova.conf (as usual, but without any db info)
- nova-db.conf
- nova-api-db.conf

I'll write a function inside openstack-pkg-tools to get this done, and
the config files stored in the nova-common package (and the matching
debconf scripts poking into the correct new configuration files). I hope
Canonical people will follow my lead (could you confirm please?) so we
don't have to write special cases for Ubuntu or Debian in puppet-openstack.

I will implement this starting with Victoria and on, and patch

I'll manage to get --config-file as parameters when starting daemons
(it's possible to do so, even when using uwsgi).

I still don't understand the nova-cell<ID>-db.conf thing though. Isn't
the connection info for the cells located in the nova-api database?
