And then just filters out itself the one it does not want? So it sould
be easy to implement a "black list" of interfaces instead of "white
list" as it is currently done?

And there are not many events? So those events are just when
interfaces appear and disappear? Sending and receiving of packets is
done by normally binding on interfaces once olsrd is informed about
