[Openstack] Multiple Versions in Openstack API

I agree that, while it's a pain, supporting old versions of the API is the best way to grow adoption. For many shops, simply supporting OpenStack API is a large engineering effort ... having to revisit it every version update might bust the camels back. Easy to see why Amazon goes back so far.

There was a discussion in the old DirectAPI thread about how versioning might be implemented.

So I also think it is great to support multiple apis (and major versions). Right now I am more concerned with how we should accomplish this in the code. Does anyone have any objection to creating a different directory under nova/api per api and major version with a common set of code shared between them?
