YAML network configuration abstraction for various backends (NetworkManager, networkd)

netplan reads network configuration from /etc/nplan/*.yaml which are written by administrators, installers, cloud image instantiations, or other OS deployments. During early boot it then generates backend specific configuration files in /run to hand off control of devices to a particular networking daemon.

Currently supported backends are networkd and NetworkManager.

There will also be a command line tool to drive some operations.
