your project looks very interesting. However I don't understand why we
should not just run olsrd and the current implementation of ArpON

olsrd demon never manages data traffic and sent packets are always
broadcast/multicast, so ARP protocol is not involved

what is the benefit of running ArpON as a olsrd plugin ? Why it has to
interact with the routing protocol ?
