[Olsr-dev] reduce OLSR bandwidth by tuning emission intervals

As long as you build a hierarchy of routing protocols you should be fine.

One OSPF (or whatever) core that is connected to lots of OLSR meshs
(even multiple connections to the same one).

You either have a direct connection towards the target or you go ONCE
through the OSPF network.

But I am not sure how well OSPF takes the fast changing metrics within
the OLSR networks. If you have multiple connections to the same mesh,
finding a good link towards nodes in this mesh is a bit tricky.

VPN server or any Internet host is reached using default gateway (hey, use SmartGateway:-). Al destinations in private space are reached via private network, e.g. the OpenVPN tunnels and in some cases via the backbone.
