I'm not sure if Horizon will support this, although if the cloud provider's
APIs are standard, it might be possible to set up Horizon and point it at
the provider's endpoints.

However, why would you want to do this?  If we're talking Rackspace or HP,
they have consoles which appear to give you the same basic functionality as
Horizon.  Right now you should be able to "run [your] own cloud from an old
crusty pentium laptop with 512MB of memory."  Am I missing something?
