[one-users] Dynamic IP Leases and NIC hotplug on Running VM

I'd like to be able to Add IP addresses (Leases) to running VM (hot
plugging new NIC).

Is this something possible? From what I understand this is not
possible (as of OpenNebula 3.3). A VM would have to be destroyed and a
new template submitted.

My thinking was something like adding a one.vn.assign API call and an
"assign" option under the Lease Management page (on Sunstone). Then a
window would come up where you can pick an existing VM. However, I am
not sure how this would interact with the hypervisor, perhaps a call
to a new vmm script (for hypervisors that can do NIC hotplug).

Perhaps an "unassign" call would make sense too (hot remove of IP Leases).

What are your thoughts?
