So how about putting your qemu-bridge-helper into qemu for the -net bridge
wrapper, but makeing -net netcf default to a different wrapper that we
put into netcf?

The netcf version can then be extended with advanced features like routing
and macvlan modes, as well as more sophisticated integration into the
distro's access control infrastructure.
