nova-cloud-controller not installing nova-network

On Trusty, the description of the nova-cloud-controller charm says it
installs nova-network, and everything seems to indicate that it supports
it, but the package doesn't seem to ever actually be installed.

Is this by design to push people to Neutron, or is it an oversight?

For what it's worth, there are still legit use cases for nova-networking.
For example, I want to get openstack setup to create vms for serving a
large number of local users. Having the VMs live directly on the local
office network is not only simple, but it allows the best performance since
I avoid having to shunt all the VM traffic through a single router, which
Neutron seems to require.

Manually installing nova-network package helps in that instances now
launch, but there still isn't functional networking. What is the
recommended way forward?
