Just to be clear, the v2 version will remain in Havana so it will be only
an issue for your product if you are
porting it to the v3 API. As os-virtual-interfaces doesn't support Quantum
I guess you're only using it when openstack is setup with nova-network?

It looks to me that it should be possible to get the same information
the quantum API (and nova-network is going away in the nearish future). Can
you see any reason that
might not be possible?

It looks like extended_virtual_interfaces should be on that list of
extensions not to port since it is directly
dependent on os-virtual-interfaces
