Can you explain what sort of network connectivity you are
managing here ?

The virNetwork APIs are specifically for an IP layer virtual
switch, that does IP forwarding, optionally with NAT.

Reading the patches, it sounds more like you're trying to
represent ethernet layer virtual switches (aka bridging
to physical NICs). This is what the virInterface APIs are
intended to cover

So if my understanding is correct you need to implement
the virInterface APIs rather than virNetwork APIs

I guess you're right. My initial idea was to describe the management of network interfaces. I was not aware of this virInterface API. Perhaps I should re write from the beginning, which will not take long since I have all the command calls ready and logic fresh in my head.

Thanks you very much for the comment, will send a patch soon.
