Hi, Isaku.  Due to the changes Ben mentioned, I need to be able to assign OpenFlow port numbers to make the ofproto-dpif unit tests pass.  I've gotten most of the way through a patch to add that support with this new infrastructure.  I haven't yet written unit tests, so if you're okay with it, I'd like to fold your unit tests (with attribution in the commit log) into my patch.  Would you be okay with that?
