[pve-devel] [RFC manager] Allow specifying cluster and public network separately

We always recommend putting ceph-internal communication into a separate cluster
network. Yet pveceph init does not allow to specify one, leading to
difficulties if one were to follow the setup guide on the wiki, which proceeds
to create monitors after the ceph network was initialised.
In case you never had to, changing the IP of a monitor is a huge PITA.
Ideally I'd like to group cluster_network and public_network so that either
both or neither have to be specified. Also I'd like this group to be mutually
exclusive with the network param, with the whole construct still being
optional.
But I'm not sure if your cmdline builder can deliver that.
