I forgot to respond to part of this before, about adding
additional vif details.  I guess by this you mean the details
that were previously dumped out by the "dump-vif-details"
script.  I'm not sure that I have a clean solution for this
particular problem.  If this part required an extra call to
something else (ovs-cfg-mod I suppose) do you judge that it would
still be valuable to add support for multiple operations in a
single ovs-vsctl run?
