I'm deep into this netlink/rtnetlink business currently. I'm trying to decide if it's better to use guile-ffi or if it's just easier to use bash scripts and iproute2. Then virtual network interfaces could map to specific containerized services, which is my objective. Long-term, the netlink and rtnetlink fii is the superior approach. But bash scripts could get us something hacky, but running quickly.
My other curiosity is: would it make more sense for shepherd to generate virtual network namespaces when services spawn, or is that something the operating-system declaration should contain?
I'd love to help. I'm on the verge of putting some code down now that the research is coalescing into a vision. If there's some guidance or suggestions or otherwise, please try to get me involved!
