Preemptively Integrate the Universe

We are currently doing preemptive integration on all the openstack projects needed to run an OpenStack cloud. But we depend on a hundred upstream python packages, which have very mixed track records on their ability to upgrade smoothly. This creates problems all the time during the release, and two weeks of hell right before pycon, as everyone pushes out new major versions.

We can do better.

I'd like to come up for a plan of attack to preemptively integrate the world. Starting with all the python libraries that have moved to stackforge, and expanding to any upstream library that we've had issues with in the past. For non stackforge things this wouldn't be gating, but be informative, and help us understand when problems are coming, and hopefully let us catch bugs in upstream packages before they hit released versions.
