For the virtual network case, you could do it in a round about way by getting
the network name from the domain <interface> block, then parsing the bridge
name from the equivalent of virsh net-dumpxml <netname>

But if we are providing an API like that it should probably work for virtual
networks (but then again I don't know the specific use case that API was meant
to address so it may be conceptually wrong).
