--------------------------------------------------

  
  Each major area will have plugins to provide easy choice for providers, based on their own
architectures, but at the same time, many plugins use cases will be shared between many providers.
  
- Lets take the example of a user creating and booting a new Cloudlets image. The user calls
the providers create_image call, with a JSON repersentation of their image.  The provider
validates the JSON and adds its own attributes, optionally overriding the Kernel or other
attributes.  This JSON repersentation is then sent to the Image Rendering endpoint.

  The endpoint validates the JSON, and then returns a opaque ID for this image, and the provider
must then store this association with its user.   The service then begins fetching resources
like a the Cloudlets tarball over HTTP, or fetching the data from another plugin backend like
a distributed filesystem.  Once the required resources are fetched either remotely or from
a local cache, the image is converted into the providers preferred format, in this example
a bootable ext3 image suitable for use by Xen.
