At home, I use a simple trick. I'm working with soekris and mini-pci seanao
cards (from netgate).  If I don't put an atenna to one of the mini-pci, and
with suffisent distance between the nodes, I'm a ble to reproduce it.

Ok I'll try to code a plugin for this. Now I'm busy with a plugin to
integrate the node name (and maybee services proposed by this node) into
OLSR messages and save it in a DNS cache.
