I am personally not ready to throw that switch yet, at least until the
Neutron gate job passes regularly and is voting again. (Yes, I know
there is a reason, that's not the point.)

Yes.  That is what DevStack does for nova-network today.  IIRC the
idea was to get Neutron duplicating that setup, including security
groups and floating IPs, then we woud make the change.  The first step
would be to make sure that the default Neutron config in DevStack is
the correct setup so that only changing ENABLED_SERVICES is necessary
to have the same basic configuration.

The next thing I want to have is the code for unstack.sh to call to
back out as much of the net configuration as possible.  At least as
far as nova-network does today with br100 holding the IP for the
public interface, but even getting that out would be cool.
