More information about MidoNet itself here:

This plugin aims to replace the need for the Virtual Router VM when using MidoNet, by providing
services such as Source NAT, Static NAT, DHCP, Firewall within the MidoNet virtual network.

The plugin creates the correct logical topology in MidoNet based on user API / UI actions
in CloudStack.

VM Guest traffic NICs connect to a TAP interface on the host, via which traffic flows into
the MidoNet virtual network. Routing, firewall rules etc are applied in the virtual network,
and traffic is tunnelled to the appropriate destination host, and then on to the destination

The functional spec will provide more detail on tis feature, but if this ticket needs more
detail or any changes, please let me know.
