Sorry, I have to disagree with you here, Justin :)  The Cactus release
is supposed to be about stability and the only features going into
Cactus should be to achieve API parity of the OpenStack Compute API
with the Rackspace Cloud Servers API. Doing such a huge change like
moving communication from AMQP to HTTP for volume and network would be
a change that would likely undermine the stability of the Cactus
release severely.
