IF we decide to put this in OLSRv1, maybe we should have a look
together at your code and the OONF-code to see if we missed something
(in one or the other).

The reason was that the development branch had moved away from the
"stable" one that much that we never merged it back. So I decided to
move this feature to OLSRv2, where both the telnet and the http server
is part of the core.

Another feature I am working hard to put into OLSRv2... :)

everything will be reconfigurable during runtime. Either by triggering
a config-file reload or by telnet command.
