Nononono, EVEN for scripting... not ONLY

in the gui i need it because i've many servers with more than 12 network 
and i will give to it (as in the patch) mnemonic names.

THe solution for the network device names would be very simpler
(i've done it but you said that you cannot change nothing)

We let vmbr0 or vmbr1 or whatever you want as is but i've added
the possiblity to append the mnemonic name (5 chars)



and so on

only 4 or 5 regexp


When possible i think that this is better than network_name

No need to change scripting, no need to change GUI:

all is autoreferencing
