Hi Guys,

Recently,  I has been working on integrate MOM into VDSM.  MOM needs
to use VDSM API to interact with it.  But currently, it requires the
instance of clientIF to use vdsm API.  Passing clientIF to MOM is
not a good choice since it's a vdsm internal object.  So I try to
remove the parameter 'cif' from the interface definition and change
to access the globally unique  clientIF instance in API.py.
Please remind me - why don't we continue to pass the clientIF instance,
even if it means mentioning it each and every time an API.py object is
created? It may be annoying (and thus serve as a reminder that we should
probably retire much of clientIF...), but it should work.

In the old MOM integration patch, I passed the clientIF instance to MOM by the following method:

Here's your comments on the patch:

"_cif is not the proper API to interact with Vdsm. API.py is. Please change MOM to conform to this, if possible.

I think that mom should receive an API object (even API.Global()!) that it needs for its operation. Even passing BindingXMLRPC() object is more APIish than the internal clientIF object."

So I try to remove cif from API definition to make MOM can call the VDSM API without having clientIF.

To get the instance of clientIF,  I add a decorator to clientIF to
change it into singleton. Actually, clientIF has been working as a
global single instance already.  We just don't have an interface to
get it and so passing it as parameter instead.  I think using
singleton to get the instance of clientIF is more clean.

Dan and Saggi already gave some comments in
http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#change,4839  Thanks for the reviewing!  But
I think we need more discussion on it,  so I post it here because
gerrit is not the appropriate to discuss a design issue.

Thanks !
