hmm one last try to clarify things: (-;

1. olsrd does not deal with arp resolution or even mac adresses,..
infact it never does anything, which will "directly" trigger any arp action

(except its optional arp_refresh plugin, wihich i would simply not use
together with arpOn)

but yes an olsrd nodes/meshes can suffer from arp-spoofing.
(like any device, which uses arp protocol)

but i still see no reason why it should be an olsrd plugin,.. (cause of 1.)
(an till now, you never presented a reason for this,..)

it should be enough to simply run arpOn on any mesh node,..

as i assume no interaction of arpon and olsrd is needed.
arpon "just" have to make sure that the mac adresses in the local arptable
are correct. (same as it will do on a node which does not even run olsrd)
