Hi Mitar,

what a long mail. Academics concentrate on algorithms, while nerds concentrate 
on make-anything-new-from-scratch. They both underestimate network layer-8 
and time. From my perspective these are the most critical variables:

- Motivation (layer 8)
- Documentation (or the lack of, mostly layer 8)
- Willingness to work together (layer 8 but also a timing prob)
- Environment (e.g. size of free spectrum chunk, layer 8)
- Deployment (long term prob, time)

Besides that: you are right. Add LinkQualityAlgorithm "etx_ffeth" to your
