To simplify the requirements we'd talked about:

1) need to identify which BSSIDs from scan results are an OLSR mesh node
2) when connecting to an OLSR node, olsrd needs to be started
3) once connected, IP configuration method may be specific to that mesh
network and cannot be autodetected yet
4) need to separately identify OLSR mesh networks in UI applets

Correct?  Are there any more?  Not trying to talk implementation here,
but the 10,000ft requirements picture in general.
