[Olsr-dev] convincing google to support ad-hoc mode

I'm here at the Google Internet at Liberty conference in Washington DC.  There are some internal rumblings in Google about making Android support Ad-hoc mode natively.  I think we should support this effort as much as possible, since it'll make mesh on Android work a lot easier.  One concern in Google is whether the hardware universally supports ad-hoc mode, or whether Android would have to make special cases for the hardware that does not support ad-hoc mode.

As far as I know, all wifi hardware that would be included in an Android phone will support ad-hoc mode.  Anyone have any info on this, whether contradicting or supporting this claim?
