have a look at the code of OBAMP plugin.

the OBAMP plugin first discovers the other OBAMP nodes using a new
OBAMP olsr message. Then it creates udp overlay tunnels between the
OBAMP nodes to forward multicast data.

it is not a p2p application but is a multicast distribution tree...
but maybe you can recycle some code :)

One hint: the olsrd code changes very quickly, if you want your
plugins to survive a very good thing is to release them open source
and ask the community to commit them in the official development
release !
