As we discussed offline, interface-reconfigure is a mess everywhere but the "citrix" branch.  I killed my changes to InterfaceReconfigureVswitch.py, since the problems are more serious than my addition of this essentially no-op.

For everyone else, Ben's been kind enough to devote tomorrow to fixing interface-reconfigure in the "next" branch.  Since "next" and "master" have fundamentally different ways of handling configuration, the effort to get "master" straightened out is nontrivial.  The "next" branch should be merged into "master" before too long.

I went ahead and pushed the changes to the "vif" script, since that was causing the most problems for external people.  I'll a spin a new unstable release with this change soon.
