+Command Incompatibilities
+Known incompatibilities with various commands on various distributions, and
+the workarounds we use.
+brctl show <bridge> fails on SLES9 SP2.  Workaround is to use brctl show
+without arguments, and grep, though this would be difficult were you to need
+to check for a specific bridge-interface pair, since brctl does not show the 
+bridge name on every line.
+ifup / ifdown
+SuSE requires an extra parameter to ifup, which is created by calling getcfg
+appropriately.  See xen-network-common.sh for details.
+Gentoo doesn't have ifup/ifdown; appropriate alternatives are defined in
