Hi Joe, Tools like Pumphouse  (migrates workloads, e.g. instances, between two OpenStack clouds) would benefit from supporting this (Pumphouse would be able to replicate user instances in a new cloud up to their UUIDs).
Are there any known gotchas with support of this feature in REST APIs (in general)?
