Merlin will be a generic library\framework in Horizon for Application
projects (Heat, Murano, Solum). We still need to have specific
implementations of UI for each project, but these projects will reuse the
common code.

We can put existing Murano UI to Dashboard or inside Catalog program as a
separate repo. I think it might make sense to keep UI components closer to
project rather then keep UI in a separate program.
