So, I should wait until L3 and try again, but in quantum?

Yes, on a per network-node basis. Also, rather than binding the IP to
the public network device, it should bind the IP to lo (to avoid arp
issues). Binding the IPs to lo is likely doable without any changes,

Well, I can write this as a plugin, based on the plugin code in
openstack-common. I thought this was a useful enough change to go in
core, though. If everything in quantum is going to be a plugin, I'm
more than happy to have this as a plugin.
When do you expect this API to be available? I plan on backporting my
work to nova for diablo and essex, but I'd like to make sure I have
this upstream in the right place, and in the preferred way.
