I'm not enthusiastic about this idea.

I'm using the freifunk mesh to go online with a notebook.

The current situation is, that I'm announced to the network immediately when I 
start olsrd.  That's fine. It still takes about ~40 seconds until the gateway 
has a route back to me (4 hops).

We use a Hello interval of 5 seconds here, so if X>6 this would be an 
additional delay of >30 secs. 

Btw: I spoke with Sven-Ola about that ETX=0 bug last wednesday. If I remember 
correctly it has something to with fragmented hello packets, which are sent 
fragmented but not put together again on the receiver side.
