This should be fine, ipaddr looks to be as commonly available as IPy so it
shouldn't cause any distribution problems.

Indeed, I think trying to expose every little detail would be overkill. But
I'm also not super familiar with all the libvirt networking capabilities so
it's tough to say what be added and what should be ignored. We can start with
your patches and figure it out from there.

I wouldn't worry about editing/modify until after the rest of the bits are in
place. We can talk about it then.

Don't worry about the TUI, just adapt the code and I'll worry about making
sure it isn't entirely broken.
