I am working on the NHDP code at the moment and trying to have a version 
that can be tested this year.

The main problem is that the datastructures where the configuration 
options are stored were not designed with later changes in mind. So 
there might be some tricks necessary to change them in a clean way.

In theory you should be able to write a plugin that removes an interface 
from OLSRd, cleans up the corresponding configuration settings, add net 
configuration settings and add the interfaces again.
