hi thomas

i did not look at tas because i'm working on osx. further i'm not  
sure anymore if all those frontend and data capturing plugins are  
really the way to go. i favour a proper ipc implementation where data  
from olsr core and data from plugins would be accessible thru the  
same connection in an uniform way... just dreamin :).
