    Makes sense for the host side to have naming convention tied
    to the guest. Example as a prefix: guest0-eth0. Would it not
    be interesting to have the host also manage these interfaces
    via standard tools like ip or ifconfig etc? i.e if i admin up
    guest0-eth0, then the user in guest0 will see its eth0 going
    up.

    Anyways, interesting discussion.

    cheers,
