That was the last bit that was added, the following Monday as the
managed-node-config / host-browser bit is the most unfamiliar component
to me.

Right now whenever the server receives information pertaining to a nic /
bonding, it simply creates the specified device w/ a new statically
assigned network. The device itself is associated with a new ip address
containing the information it received (same information it was
previously storing in the nics / bondings tables itself). When the
device is updated via the wui, the application takes this information
and relays it to the nodes, as it did previously, but ignores
information contained in the associated network.

Essentially this both sides needs to be changed, eg we need to determine
if an existing network can be used (and the requirements for making this
decision) when the server receives network information, as well as use
the info stored in the networks table when updating nodes from the
database. When the network-qpid stuff is inplace that will need to be
mapped to this as well.
