hmm not really .. that thinking implies that there is only one source
(routin daemon) supplying routing information.

like bernd has described many of us olsrd
developers use a openvpn tunnel to some olsr cloud to get a link-state
feed in order to test olsrd. here i already have two sources
for the default route ... one (static) to my ISP and another one
pointing over the openvpn (tap) interface.
