I suspected as much based on how strongly you were advocating this.

You're a little too suspicious. RHEV-H has nothing to do with my opposition to -net bridge.

I think my point still stands though, there's an awful lot of management software out there that gets it wrong. It's great that you guys got it right but so far, the majority of users are not using qemu through RHEV-M so I still think we have a problem.

I'm worrying that we're transforming one problem into two different ones. Expanding the scope of qemu, and making it more difficult to use advanced networking functionality.

Do you object to the idea of having qemu call to a helper program directly or to the idea of having the helper program in qemu at all? Splitting the helper into a separate project may be a more constructive discussion as was suggested by Arnd.

As a separate project, libvirt could also make use of it and use -net tap,fd= if it wanted to do crazy things. From a distro perspective, it's just a matter of setting up dependencies to make it Just Work so I don't object to it that much. It's just a bit annoying to create an entire new project for a few hundred line helper.
