I recognise the desire to do this for Cactus, but I feel that pulling
out the network controller (and/or volume controller) into their own
separate OpenStack subprojects is not a good idea for Cactus.  Looking
at the (dozens of) blueprints slated for Cactus, doing this kind of
major rework will mean that most (if not all) of those blueprints will
have to be delayed while this pulling out of code occurs. This will
definitely jeopardise the Cactus release.

My vote is to delay this at a minimum to the Diablo release.

And, for the record, I haven't seen any blueprints for the network as
a service or volume as a service projects. Can someone point us to
