Almost.

create should be:
        * verify namespace-name is not already in use
        * mkdir -p /var/run/netns/<namespace-name>
	* unshare the netns
        * mount --bind /proc/self/ns/net /var/run/netns/<namespace-name>

Are you talking about an replacing something that used to use the linux
vrf patches that are floating around?
