yeah I agree.

Had a discussion with Teco about this yesterday.
We think the current httpinfo is a bit clumsy. We'd rather see something 
like a REST (or even JSON) interface on olsrd, and have the web serving 
done by another process.

That process can then present it in any fashion it likes, including 
using templates, apache or a nano http server, whatever.

We don't need all this infrastructure in the daemon itself people!
Seperating out also is much better for performance, maintenance, 
flexibility, etc
