Yeah, that's certainly a tiny change.  There are several Neutron
patches, but they're all pretty simple IMO.

I picked up this task to help with the Neutron and nova-network parity
work.  It tests the backend that isn't even my primary focus/interest,
but I still wanted to help the parity work along.  If it ends up
requiring this significant extra work, I'll honestly most likely just
drop it completely and hope someone else feels like taking it on.
