lab 10.2.8 (and possible others) --net-id vs --net-name

in command nova boot --flavor smallfry --image cirros \ --security-group web-ssh --key-name finance-key \ --nic net-id=blah-blah bc1 we need to know the id of the network we created, where as we could just use the name nova boot --flavor smallfry --image cirros \ --security-group web-ssh --key-name finance-key \ --nic net-name=finance-internal bc1 seems easier to me.

probably applies to other situations where the doco calls for an id.

    Why something is done a particular way can be a difficult thing to figure out.  With the advent of domains there is a chance the name would be the same and have a different ID.

    I think that contacting the developer who wrote that code as well as the planning and blueprint committess would be a good place to start in getting these sorts of commands changed.
