I’ve been thinking of some hybrid cellsv1/v2 thing where we’d still have the
top level api cell DB but the API would only ever read from it. Nova-api would
only write to the compute cell DBs.
Then keep the nova-cells processes just doing instance_update_at_top to keep
the nova-cell-api db up to date.
There was also the "read from searchlight" idea  but that died in Boston.
