What would you think about making a vbridge interface (or some name
like that) that would be a combined bridge and vether in one driver?
And simply not giving the vether a name (or an actual attachment) ...

Then we loose the ability to have a virtual network yes?
server -> vether0 -> bridge0 -> vether1 -> client

If we change to the model
server -> bridge_ether0 -> client

Then the packets never actually leave the interface rendering diagnostic via tcpdump useless or testing DHCP useless.
