Yes, this is the current plan for libStorageMgmt.  To provide the
missing management path to third party storage arrays in a consistent
manner.

I'm starting to think that the project name is causing some confusion.
Some of the ambiguity was intentional as eventually the library will
hopefully allow users to manage other pieces of the storage puzzle like
FC switches, but perhaps it is too general.

I believe users would like tools/libraries to manage and simplify the
whole area of storage and
http://sourceforge.net/p/storagemanager/home/Home/ is working towards that.
