Yes, I plan to continue this experiment. Unfortunately to integrate it into 
the OLSR we need a change in the packet format, the current one is not really 
usefull for other metrics than the current ETX one.

So I postponed the experiments, without the conversion to the OLSRv2 packet 
format it will be a pain...

At the moment we are doing lot's of work for a 0.5.7 release which will 
contain support for NIIT (stateless tunneling of IPv4 traffic over IPv6 mesh) 
and asymmetric tunnels to the gateway.

When this is done we have to port all fixes of the 0.5.x branch to the 
development branch. After this I can continue on the OLSRv2 conversion... and 
this we will integrate the layer2 metrics stuff I think.

At the moment we have not enough manpower to do multiple things at once.
