I have been thinking about how the "olpc mesh network" and the "default
adhoc network" can coexist.
From a user point of view, I think the features can be exclusive. If
the mesh hardware is available we use the mesh code and draw the three
mesh icons in the neighborhood view. If the hardware is not available we
fallback to the "ad hoc network" code and make that available through
the three icons in the neighborhood view.
What do others think about that?
