Asymetric encrypton(combined with some key distribution scheme) would be 
an interesting feature. It is fully possible - and the solution is 
designed to be easy to extend. But security is not my main focus - 
actually, I doubt I will have time to work much on any extension now 
that I am finishing my master... So this will not be prioritized by me. 
The way I see it my main focus will be working on olsrd. I hope other 
people will create/maintain various plugins.

Perhaps somebody else would be interested in doing this?
