Somone just helped me here. You need to make a wrapper for the existing scripts.
Make a new file called my-network-bridge

dir=$(dirname "$0")
"$dir/network-bridge" "$@" vifnum=0 netdev=eth0 bridge=xenbr0
"$dir/network-bridge" "$@" vifnum=1 netdev=eth1 bridge=xenbr1
"$dir/network-bridge" "$@" vifnum=2 netdev=eth2 bridge=xenbr2

Change the names to what is applicablke for your version of xen.

Open the config.sxp and point it to the new script, this one calls that old 
one. I think you need to make this script executable.
