What would be the preferred API for controlling open switch bridges from
c++ user space application. (both Windows and Linux version of ovs should
be supported). the controller should run on both windows and linux also.

1. reverse engineering ovs-vsctl (or test controller) and use the same API
it does.

2. use some open-source c++ openflow stack (if exists)

3. just run System("ovs-vsctl ...") from the application

The application mostly opens and configures the ports. Controlling the
openflow tables is of less priority.
