FYI, for anyone using libvirt we recommend only using network-bridge
and vif-bridge. libvirt then provides a 'virtual network' capability
which allows you to define multiple local networks either completely
isolated from the physical network, or connected via NAT. This effectively
provides same functionality as vif-nat/network-nat, but without requiring
the admin to modify shell scripts.
