I am not disagreeing with you, but either way, libvirt needs _some_ way
to control host interfaces. And seeing how there are no tools that do
something like the above in a portable way, it seems worthwhile, too.

The question is probably more whether some of this functionality should
be split out in a way that can be used independenty of libvirt.
