The problem is that at the moment there is no way for a plugin to access the 
variables of another one, and there is so concept of plugin dependencies. It 
sounds interesting, but I don't think it will be necessary for the next 
version of OLSRd, because most use cases are just for publishing data from a 
plugin through txtinfo or similar.

In the master branch the telnet server code is in the core, so each plugin can 
just add it's own commands just by writing a few callbacks.
