[ovs-dev] [PATCH 0/2] ovs-appctl Changes

This is an attempt to make ovs-appctl a bit easier to use.  Requiring
the user to type in the full path can be a bit cumbersome.  In most
installs, this commit will allow the user to just specify the daemon 
name.  I'm not sure if "-d" and "--daemon" are the correct ways to
specify this, since I tend to think of "-d" as meaning enable debugging.
I don't suppose it matters that much.  I think the existing "-t" and
"--target" options would be better renamed "-s" and "--socket" or
something similar, but I didn't want to break any existing scripts.
However, if there are no complaints, I'd be happy to make the change.
