Why is it not a good idea?  If that olsrd.conf was already setup with
the settings you need, would that change it in your opinion?  I am a big
believer in "sensible defaults".  I think we can set the defaults so
that olsrd is likely to work on many if not most meshes with very little
config by the user.  Then anyone who wants to is free to change the
config just as easily as if there were not "sensible defaults".
