we are working on a smart way to provide guest with
a virtualized version of the loopback device, which
will solve this issues without providing a virtual
network interface

NGNET is still being delayed for various reasons, one
being the fact that there was a promise to sponsor it
but the potential sponsors did not hold it (yet),
another reason is the fact that mainline is working
on something similar and we do not want to waste the
scarce resources on a parallel development, finally
it seems like we could do really well without the
all-virtualized approach in 99% of all cases ...

so stay tuned, maybe have a chat on the channel if
you want to get more details ...
