I am not familiar with OpenStack code yet but in Hail we eventually
did exactly that, although not for efficiency, but because we were
tired of carefuly porting bugfixes. Also it allowed outside-of-family
programs to use the Amazon S3 C bindings without installing
unrelated packages. You might want to consider throwing a couple
of CloudFiles clients into openstack-common too.
