Bug Description

When running virt-manager as root: On the "Connect to host network" page of the new VM wizard, I'd like to see it default to "Shared physical device" if (and only if) there's a bridged entry in that list (e.g. "eth0 (Bridge br0)"). If such an interface exists, the odds are very high that it'd be the desired interface.
