Hi Jens,

The autoconfiguration does not rely on MAC addresses at all(well it is 
used as a indintification in the intital traffic). Duplicate address 
detection(DAD) is performed trough the entire MANET.

Hopefully a paper and a draft will be avalible sometime during this 
summer. I'll get back to it as soon as stuff happens.

I really hope this code can be GPLed too ;)

With address autoconfiguration and security functionallity one just 
needs some authentication/key management feature to have a complete 
MANET "suite" IMO :)
