Same, although we don't have a *big* problem with this (we haven't upgraded 
to Luminous yet, so we can skip to next point release and move to 
ceph-volume together with Luminous). It's still a problem, though - now we 
have more of our infrastructure to migrate and test, meaning even more 
delays in production upgrades.
