Using olsrd-adhoc-setup is completely optional and off by default.  In
order to use olsrd, the wifi needs to be configured, this provides an
easy way to do that for beginners.  Everyone is free to ignore it if
they don't like it.

As for which network settings should be default, I'm open to
suggestions.  Its just that I'm currently working on the Commotion
network, so I know what settings will work by default.  I don't know the

Also, Commotion is a network designed to be ad-hoc in nature, unlike
most other existing networks like funkfeuer, which are managed.
Therefore, I think it makes sense to have the default network be one
that is meant to work without setup, versus setting the defaults to
something like funkfeuer, which won't work until you've gotten an IP
address thru their registration process.
