Hmm, that's a little tricky since oscompute will be contain the cmdline tool and the client tool to the REST API (cmdline is just a shell interface over the client). It would mean splitting things up and the setup.py would get complicated. 

To Eric's point

I'd prefer os-computer over oscomputer, but that's a nit...

The way we structured it in Glance is that /glance/client.py contains
the client that speaks the Glance REST API. "Tools" go into bin/,
including CLI tools. So, bin/ contains not just the servers
(glance-api and glance-registry), but also the daemon control tool
(glance-control, similar to swift's bin/swift-init) and now CLI tools
like glance-admin and glance-upload.

Just a thought,
