[Openstack] transfer of IP address between ports

Hi Andrew,

thanks for the prompt reply.

I'm using fixed ip addresses, not floating IPs. In terms of Heat it 
looks like there:

   type: OS::Neutron::Port
     name: n1-wan
     network: e-net
     fixed_ips: [ { subnet: e-subnet, ip_address: X.X.X.X } ]

   type: OS::Nova::Server
     name: n1
       - port: { get_resource: n1-wan }

and there are some constraints in my installation:

 1. I can't move ports between VMs (in order to support predictable
    naming according to port roles, their MAC addresses are stored in
    udev rules inside VM and if I will change port, rules/roles will fail)
 2. I don't want to use floating ip due to possible performance
    degradation when using massive NAT

Another idea I have is to move ports between VMs, changing their MACs 
accordingly and will try it if no other ways will be found :)

Thanks again.
