Thanks for getting the discussion rolling. Although it may be obvious, I want to point out one aspect of OLPC's "mesh" needs that has complicated matters. Our XO laptops are used at home, in a sparse network environment, and at school, in a dense network environment, and all levels of density in between. Mesh with relatively static nodes is easier and has been implemented a number of different ways worldwide. One of OLPC's chief needs is a system that works as seamlessly as possible - for 8-year-old users in large groups. It's not reasonable (IMHO) to tell our users to adjust their txpower manually to adapt to their current RF density. To provide a good solution, we need to be able to figure out how to make that adjustment automatically.
