yes yes yes yes yes yes !

this is exactly what i want. this will give us a lot of flexibility in 
planning our network, and it will certainly give us improved 
performance. defining this per-remote-ip is great, too.

it would be really neat if we could redefine these parameters without 
restarting olsrd. then i would write a script that estimates the link 
speed with iwconfig/ifconfig or ping and calculates those values.
(of course i will use a hysteresis for this)
would changing those values too often introduce loops, or is the packet 
loss information propagated instantly?
