lab 10.2.8 (and possible others) --net-id vs --net-name

in command
nova boot --flavor smallfry --image cirros \
--security-group web-ssh --key-name finance-key \
--nic net-id=blah-blah bc1

we need to know the id of the network we created, where as we could just use the name

nova boot --flavor smallfry --image cirros \
--security-group web-ssh --key-name finance-key \
--nic net-name=finance-internal bc1

seems easier to me.

probably applies to other situations where the doco calls for an id.
