Thanks for your patch! In general we like the idea of being able to
choose arbitrary names for bridges - but there's some additional things
to consider before we can apply those patches.

We are currently using prefixes for other types of interfaces as well.
With this patch series I could create bridges named 'bondX' which are
then picked up as a bond by the Web UI since the check for that in
INotify.pm is located before the check for bridges.
It would be a bit weird to name a bridge with the prefix bond
admittedly, but we should try to handle this more gracefully (iow. check
first whether an entry is a bridge and only then check for the other cases)

It might make sense to check for any possible conflicts with the SDN
config (running & staged).

I've added some additional comments inline - I can look into a v2
addressing those issues.
