That's about the same as lxd-init, isn't it?

I'm pretty sure my problem is I was trying to fully script everything
from zero, and didn't know how to script "sudo lxd init".  I used its --auto
flag, and all the options it provides, but didn't realize that meant I
had to set up the bridge manually.  None of the doc I've seen
actually shows the exact commands to script what lxd init does,
or at least shows them in a way that's easy for an idiot to recognise.
(I'm sure somebody who is fluent in linux bridges would say "not needed,
it's obvious" :-)
