Could we make it conceptually similar to WUI NIC configuration, so instead of iterating NICs, ask user to define networks and then assign NICs to networks (via VLANs/bonds/bridges).

Where is bridge defined?

must appened "save" command at the end to actually save the changes
also service network restart for change to take effect
