Bridged networking with KVM and MacVTap

So one of the things that really interested me with the release of Fedora 16 was the inclusion of macvtap for bridged networking. Since I use KVM on my laptop I like the interfaces to be controlled by NetworkManager. From my understanding macvtap allows the interfaces to be controlled by NM and provide bridged networking for the guest OS. So I am trying this with a Debian guest and no matter what mode I set the networking to I can't seem to get it right. Does anyone have any idea as to why? Also I am trying to get this working across my wireless card.
