Hi Sam,

Short answer is "yes".  Need to check scoping etc and make sure that it
does in fact fit within the parameters of OSLO.  It's something I thought
of a couple weeks ago but to be honest it's been low on my list personally
and nobody else that I know of has shown an interest in picking it up.

You'll notice another image related item we're *borrowing* from Nova
(cinder.image.image_utils).  In both cases there are slight modifications
to fit Cinder's use case that given a bit of work could easily be shared.
