The quantum plugins use MySQL and would probably make use of this as
well. For essex, I expect each plugin to be a separate openstack-quantum
sub-package, or more likely a pair of them in order to keep the
config/dbsetup/etc stuff separate from the python modules.
Combining all of these into one script seems like a fine idea, but I
think it would make sense to make it optional which component(s) it is
configuring the database for.
I also considered whether such a script belonged upstream or not. Right
now it's doing some Fedora specific stuff though, like offering to
install mysql-server for you if it's not already installed. It could
eventually be made more generic, but that takes time and effort. :-)
