A related use case to all this work that takes it a step further:

I think it would be useful if we could eventually further break down
"openstack undercloud deploy" into just the pieces needed to:

- start an ephemeral Heat container
- create the Heat stack passing all requested -e's
- run config-download and save the output

Essentially removing the undercloud specific logic (or all-in-one
specific logic in this case) from "openstack undercloud deploy" and
resulting in a generic way to create the config-download playbooks for
any given TripleO stack (openstack tripleo depoy?). This would be
possible when using deployed-server, noop'ing Neutron networks, and
using fixed IP's as those are the only OpenStack resources actually
created by Heat when using a full undercloud.

This would allow one to consume the ansible playbooks for a multinode
overcloud using an ephemeral Heat.

The same generic tooling could then be used to deploy an actual
undercloud, any all-in-one configuration, or any overcloud
