  Okay, this is all good to commit IMHO except for the raw network address
problem, Could you generate a patch subset, dropping the second one and
the non-ascii interfaces, using the unsigned int flags, and I guess we
can apply this safely, then we can separately discuss extending the API
for raw addresses (or not/delay them).

  For example the raw API adresses may not be a very good match for
python bindings, one more reason IMHO to avoid the duplication.

  Yes especially if we can provide relatively high level ones, not limit
ourselves to command taking an XML in, I guess this can go a long way
to help where current users are getting stuck.
