Totally agreed. I'll have it updated for the next release.

As mentioned earlier - I am now concentrating on core OLSR code. So if 
anyone is interested in taking over the maintainance/development of 
various plugins, please let me know! I belive the dot_draw plugin would 
be better off beeing maintained by people who are actually using it :-) 
For now I only update plugins on plugin-interface updates and 
requests/pathces.

PS. Somebody else hopefully knows the answer to the neato question.

- Andreas
