Basically we are looking to move kpod out of the
kubernetes-incubator/cri-o project to allow it to grow on its own.  We
plan on building out the library for creating container pods to such an
extent that CRI-O could use it as well as kpod.

Since kpod is outgrowing the original goals of the CRI-O project we
thought it best to move it to its own repository.

We plan on continuing to have kpod, buildah, cri-o and skopeo all able
to share the same containers/storage and containers/image libraries.
Unfortunately installing them all on a system will mean you get statically
compiled duplicate copies of containers/storage and containers/image. I think
in recent go versions "shared library" support has been getting better. Could
we start to do some of this for our go tools that use common libraries?
Well this is no worse then what we have now, since kpod and crio were not sharing the same code base.
As shared libraries become better we will definitely take advantage.

Note: There is a good change the kpod will change it's name, but for now
we will keep it as kpod, and the repo will be based on the library name
to prevent confusion.
