Even if it doesn't have a huge impact on the review backlog for
nova-common (I think it should at least help a bit) it does have the
potential to make life much easier for the virt driver developers. 

I think my main concern is around testing - as soon as we have multiple
repositories involved I think debugging of test failures
(especially races) tends to get more complicated and we have fewer
people who are familiar enough with the two code bases.
