Hi Dan,

I filled this blueprint a while ago but haven't gotten a chance to start implementing it https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/nova-api-quantum-create-port . I think this will help solve a lot these orchestration issues we have with how nova and quantum work together. What i'm planning for the blueprint is to basically force the clients to create a port in quantum first; then pass the port-id to nova when booting an instance (and to keep the api backwords compatitble allocate the port on the nova-api server if a network is passed in). This should make things simplier and help with this imo. Here is the discuession we had on the list a while ago about this: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2013-May/009088.html
