Yes!  Vdsm already has a 'private' API that only RHEV-m used to consume.  In the
ovirt world, vdsm needs to expose a real public API (by whatever means we
choose) so that external entities (ISVs) can leverage vdsm directly if they so
choose.  This API must be the same one that ovirt-engine uses, otherwise we are
maintaining two incompatible APIs.
