Is there pent-up user demand for OpenStack on RHEL, or service providers who are loyal to the RHEL family who would benefit from having the packages in EPEL?  Or do we expect most OpenStack users to simply use Ubuntu/Canonical or a Citrix distribution thereof?  I don't want to push packages that are likely to go unused.

I anticipate using it and drilling it into pmman, probably 
writing the needed connectors.  But I think that Enterprise 
will probably have this anyway.  Are there not 'exclusion 
because in the main distribution' issues likely?
