Except that with ELS, it's more subtle than "just a different way how
to configure a VLAN" since they also changed parts of the *logic* what
you need to do to successfully enable VST on a VLAN.  Like, pre-ELS,
it's "just there", and post-ELS, you configure a VLAN the usual way
and things explode because "no STP".

Yes, you shouldn't need to rely on STP in the first place, but this
is just plain annoyance.

(Yes, we have templates for both pre-ELS and post-ELS, but having to
figure out what is new now and how and why port-unrelated things have 
to be changed was an unneccessary waste of lifetime)
