Good news: since yesterday, all 5 of my "support" patches were merged
into NetworkManager-0.8. The only pending patch is the big one that adds
the actual mesh device support. There is one outstanding issue related
to the way it talks to NetworkManager internals. Dan Williams says he is
going to take care of this.

I've updated the wiki page.
