Adding plugability at the API layer

This idea started a while back while working with Cinder and Lunr. When you already have a system that provides all of the provisioning and coordination, it seems like a bit of overkill to have all of overhead of the rest of the infrastructure to just pass through api calls.

I would like to propose and discuss the idea of having a plugin capability at the api layer of nova and other nova like services.

1. This would provide a clean abstraction for back ends that are trying to integrate with nova that already provide the infrastructure for provisioning resources.

2. This would enable more opportunities to innovate and experiment within a project without causing disruption to the current codebase.

3. This would provide a cleaner way to implement api compatability for openstack services.

I would like to engage in a discussion to see if there is interest in the larger community with pursuing further, as I think down the road this will provide a lot more flexibility.
