I had the opposite problem.  Needed to use multiple bridges and have
some VMs behind NAT without a bridge (private IPs), and some using
separately firewalled bridges (needed to behave like real attached
hardware with their original MACs, but be firewalled).  I couldn't see
how to do it easily with libvirt, so used qemu directly.
