I think Deltacloud can stand on its own, and for purposes of the
voting into the Incubator, should ignore the existing libcloud

Libcloud however is getting closer to being able to Graduate.
(hopefully in may/june?).

I think it does raise the question, should libcloud graduate to a new
TLP, with a more generic task or providing "cross cloud" APIs and

Libcloud is already moving a little beyond just APIs, with the current
discussions around a portable image format, and beyond just python
with another discussion of a possible Java port of the library.

Deltacloud does have some overlap in comitter-ship too, and I think
fundamentally both communities share very similar interests, even if
the implementations are different languages.
