Hi Jay,

The main component that won't work without direct integration is enforcing
policy on calls directly to Neutron and calls between the plugins inside of
Neutron. However, that's only one component of GBP. All of the declarative
abstractions, rendering of policy, etc can be experimented with here in the
stackforge project until the incubator is figured out.
