[OLSR-users] Default routing question

I have a project involving a large number of WRT54G routers running linux w/ 
OLSR.  Perhaps 1 in 10 of the routers will have a backhaul to the internet, 
the rest will use these internet connected routers as gateways.  The kicker 
is this:  I want to have a single configuration that works on all routers, 
regardless of whether they are internet-connected or not.  Is this possible 
with the current OLSR imlpementation?  From what I've been able to decipher, 
the OLSR daemon finds out from the configuration file whether or not it is a 
"default" router.  I need to determine this dynamically, because I don't know 
yet which routers get an internet connection and which ones don't.

All told, the mesh will contain 50 routers initially, with about 50 more in 
six months.  Is OLSR the right tool for the job?
