That wasn't the original intent of openstack-common, but I suppose we
could adapt it.  Generally, though, I've found that open source
libraries are separated by language.  I don't think I've seen a
packaged open-source library that served two languages. I think for
other languages (especially bindings), it's better to have them in a
separate project that can be packaged according to the customs of that
programming language/platform.
