We fixed some issues in mDNS and released this as p2pd. p2pd can easily act as mDNS replacement. I can think of a merge with bmf also, where some mcast packets are transfered as OLSR messages (low overhead) and some are send with (encapsulated) IP packets. We need a filter syntax for classification (ignore / OLSR-message /  IP packet).

I use both bmf and p2pd, where broadcasts are taken by p2p2 and multicasts are taken by bmf. bmf has no filter itself, I use iptables on LAN port. Is a Q&D trick.

Some code in p2pd for de-duplication was not completed. But why are we replicating bmf features?

This leads to my advise: get rid of mDNS and p2pd. Let's improve bmf. Maybe there is a code-size problem. It  is a few 10kB larger than mDNS an p2pd. And will increase when enhanced. I don't have problems with that.
