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."
Please do not blame me! ;-)
No body dares to blame the VDSM maintainer! :P
I do not mind passing an API.Global() that happens to hold an internal
private reference to _clientIF. I just want that if we find the way to
obliterate clientIF, we won't need to send a patch to MOM, too.

It seems I misunderstood your previous comments.  I am sorry for that.
So I try to remove cif from API definition to make MOM can call the
VDSM API without having clientIF.
I do not understand - MOM could receive an API object, it does not have
to construct it by itself.
yes, we can pass an API.Global() instance to MOM, but MOM also needs to create API.VM instance. Without clientIF, I could pass a wrapped VM class to MOM. But it's ugly. So I try to remove clientIF in API exposed interface, and make the caller can use vdsm API just after importing the module. It could be cleaner. What's your opinion?

Thanks a lot!!
