Also, I'd like to point out that this is a very bad timing for me for
such discussion. As you know, I'd very much like to have my OpenStack
packages in Experimental before the summit next week, so that I have

I'm ok to discuss the possibilities of improvements, though could we
please do that after you approve this package, giving me enough time for it?
