Great! I just setup a new repository for this, and applied a few cleanups:


> Currently, it's only generate /etc/network/interfaces.d/vnet (ifupdown2 will be required for online reloading).
> Maybe later it could be great to add tap_plug/veth_plug functions if plugins don't use bridge (ovs or another vswitch) or need something like dpdk,...
> a Vnet is a linux bridge, mapped to a transportzone. (with a vlan/vxlan tag)
> a Transportzone is some kind of template for vnet (we can define vxlan peer ip, allowed vlan/vxlan,vrf,...)
> We could add permissions on transportzone.
> Use case : admin have define a transport zone with some allowed vlan for a customer, 
> and customer is allowed to create vnets on this transportzone.
> (Transportzone = tenant)
> Maybe we could move Network.pm and other network apis into this package later ?

Yes, we can consider doing this later.
