Thanks for the updated patch.

Command line option names never contain _.  Use - instead.

This introduces duplicate code blocks into cmd_create().  Don't do that.

There should be no space in "return;"

Every error message in ovs-vsctl should have a test under "database
commands -- negative checks" that provokes it.

Please add a test that using an id before creating the record works with
--row-uuid.  I do not think that it currently works.
