WDS is a MAC layer communication between accesspoints I think, so (at the 
moment) it's completely indipendant of OLSRd. The problem is OLSRd needs 
AdHoc mode...

If the client has an OLSRd instance itself it should work without problems... 
if not it will be a little bit more tricky. We talked about the idea some 
time ago, but it's not on our todo list. If you have ideas how to implement 
this feel free to talk about them (or send patches ! :) ).
