Hi Sara,

Welcome to my battle!

Luckily, there is a way to do as you wish!  If you set the "instance"
value <n> during the tap_create API call, or use "id <n>" during the
"create tap ..." CLI command, you will create an interface of the
name "tap<n>".  You may not use a different prefix than "tap", but
at least you can know what the name will be when it is created.
