So you're suggesting to add another column and modify all tasks for
this one feature?

Is this how one does predictible and easy to understand software?
Sometimes we'll say that verification is OK, othertimes that it wasn't
performed?

Issue #3 I described is still valid -- what is your solution in this case?

If someone implements pre-deployment network verifications and doesn't
add the procedures to network verification task then really no
solution can prevent the user from being able to deploy a cluster with
some invalid configuration. It's not an issue with providing info that
network checks were or weren't made.

As far as I understand, there's one supertask 'verify_networks'
(called in nailgu/task/manager.py line 751). It spawns other tasks
that do verification. When all is OK verify_networks calls RPC's
'verify_networks_resp' method and returns a 'ready' status and at that
point I can inject code to also set the DB column in cluster saying
that network verification was OK for the saved configuration. Adding
other tasks should in no way affect this behavior since they're just
subtasks of this task -- or am I wrong?
