The problem I have with that is that I require a target CS mgmt server
to do the build.  I'd like to be able to allow anyone to build, and then
use, even if they don't have a version of CloudStack running that
supports API discovery.  Think about all of the 3.x or 4.0 users, and
CloudMonkey works (sort of) well enough for them.
