The python-openstacksdk project was originally envisioned to wrap the API calls and return usable Python objects. The nova client CLI (or any other CLI, for that matter) would then just provide the command line input parsing and output presentation. It's been a while since I was involved with that project, but it seems that decoupling the command line interface from the Python API wrapper would make testing much, much easier. -- Ed Leafe
