I don't think this is going to happen through the OpenStack/Rackspace api, due to the reasons outlined above. The idea of EasyAPI is simply to expose the existing apis that we have for each component for easy consumption.  This allows us to have a simple command line utility to interact with the code we write for each component separately.

	Is there any chance that you could change the name to something that sounds a little less judgmental? I.e., if it's not EasyAPI, it must be DifficultAPI! Maybe ReflectionAPI or something that describes the approach and not an opinion.
