Both the GCS and non-GCS namespace packages will be located in the new
glusto-libs library, right?
Essentially going back to what we discussed way back about maintaining the
two separate repos for tests and libs.

I think this answers my above question, but wanted to be sure.

Will that be done via pytest markers and run via the py.test -m
