"""
Retrieve account VLAN and subnet information.

Retrieve a list of all VLANs associated with a SoftLayer customer account
and print a simple report detailing these VLANs and the subnets assigned to
them. We do this with a call to the getNetworkVlans() method in the
SoftLayer_Account API service using an object mask to retrieve the VLANs'
associated subnets and primary router records. See below for more details.
