By the way, in case it wasn't clear from my previous response, this  
second port (port0->0) is the transport port.  The first port  
(port0001) is the incoming physical port.  The action section lists  
the physical ports that traffic is supposed to be output on.

If you're going to point out that this could be clearer, I would agree  
with you.  :-)  I'll file a bug on it.
