You've lost me a bit.

still lost unfortunately.

So you want to enable learning on a port by port basis? Then we also
need to define how the two bits interact.

	switch_learning + port_learning = port in learning mode
	!switch_learning + port_learning = port not in learning mode?
	etc.

Do bridges and users actually enable learning on a per port basis?
