No, and the new front-end interface will be implemented as a plugin as
well. And it very well might be based of the httpinfo plugin. My point
was only that the httpinfo plugin will remain a separate special-purpose
plugin and that a general front-end plugin will be just that, a general
front-end plugin, and no more.

And that was why I wrote "in theory":) There is no problem imagining a
scenario where this might be a problem, but users running olsrd with
such parameters should really not use theese kind of plugins anyway.

Keep us updated on your work!
