Honestly said, I was so ;-) but now I want to incorporate external networking
tools like Open vSwitch and such tools require own special command to
connect a tap with their bridge-like interface. Then I first attempted 'script'
feature and got the problem.

I think another way is that libvirt supports such tools inside like ebtables.
Is it appreciate to libvirt? If so, I'm welcome to do that.
