hi bernd,

your changes really look good. - as soon you have the rework for the http_info
and txinfo plugin ready feel free to merge/commit to get devevelopment repository.
at http://gredler.at/hg/olsrd/ (its a development repository anyway, so we can
start to do some testing and gets our hands on). no worrie about the
stability: after the release of 0.5.6 i have forked olsrd and created a "stable"
repo where only bugfixes go into. http://gredler.at/hg/olsrd-0.5.6
