And just a note about my rationale:

The intention is to move network-related stuff out of Xend and into the
scripts, where possible.  It is still useful for some people (especially the
developers) for Xend to be able to alter the network configuration when it
starts, but in many cases it makes more sense for the init.d scripts to do it.

Given this, and for reasons of general cleanliness, I don't want Xend to need
to understand network-specific parameters like bridge names -- it is better
for Xend to just pass command line options through opaquely.  Then, distros or
users are free to add whichever parameters they like without needing to patch
