Yay. Hopefully it'll get into the next spin of F11/XO-1 and F11/XO-1.5 !

Chris,

with this and http://dev.sugarlabs.org/ticket/1610 I think we'll have
mich improved networking for XO-1.5 and XO-1.

 - The ad-hoc UI and interaction model is now similar to what we had
on F9/0.82 with mesh for "under a tree" scenarios.

 - The code detects whether msh0 is present, and will present the mesh
UI; or fall back to ad-hoc. (This means it supports XO-1 but will also
work on XO-1.5 once the thinfirm is ready and working with
open80211s.)

 - Even when msh0 is present and it's in "mesh" mode, if it spots a
running ad-hoc network, it can join it; so mesh-enabled XOs can talk
with non-mesh-enabled XOs.

Imagine the vuvuzuelas and the crowd chanting "score! merge! merge! score!"...

cheers,
