I've been doing some experiments with this. Not so much with kubes yet,
that was next on the list.
I think at the moment linking together the various network namespaces using
a linux bridge should work.
Not sure if I'm shooting myself in the foot at all using linux bridges.
Reading over the docs of openvswitch vs linux bridge it seems the bridge is
easier to understand and overall more useful.
