        17:09 < cjac> danpb: what do you think about a new .glade file for network properties?
        17:13 < danpb> you mean for virt-manager ?
        17:14 < cjac> danpb: yeah, that.  didn't you get my email? :)
        17:16 < danpb> best to send those kind of ideas to the virt-tools mailing list
        17:16 < danpb> i'm not really involved with virt-manager recently
        17:16 < cjac> ah, virt-tools.

I asked the virt-tools folks, and they mentioned that they get their
information exclusively from libvirt.  If I want to show arp table info,
I need to implement retrieval in libvirt.

Would any of you be able to help me sketch out some extensions to
libvirt to give some feedback about the virtual network interface?  It
would also be nice to have a way to remotely manage the device.  It
might be a bit too far-reaching, but quagga might be a good way to
provide such remote management.
