Create a "bluemix" Ansible module for automating app and service deployments

I recently wrote a blog that explored the possibility of using Ansible to handle provisioning and deployment orchestration for IBM Bluemix container apps. You can find the article and demo code here: http://greenchile.io/deploying-ibm-bluemix-container-apps-with-ansible/

Ansible is a popular infrastructure tool for automating deployments. The basic idea is to leverage the power of Ansible to provision, deploy, and configure IBM Bluemix apps and services. This would require Python bindings for the API and a new Ansible module which uses those bindings to speak with IBM Bluemix. This would open IBM Bluemix to a lot more people and allow them to more easily integrate IBM Bluemix into a larger, more complicated, less homogeneous infrastructure.
