Yes, #1610 contains the default adhoc networks. I asked our #1 reviewer 
Tomeu to have a look. The mesh-code did land already. When r+ed we just 
need to package it up and include it in Chris' build.

Right, I have been doing testing here with my XO1.0s and XO1.5s and I am 
quite happy with the results. As Martin said the XO1.0 can share with 
the XO1.5 and there is an easy way to collaborate without having 
infrastructure for the XO1.5s.
