Have you tested this?  I've just tested it and it doesn't work for me.
The ad-hoc network is not shown on the neighbourhood view of the XO-1.

It is, however, shown on the output of "iwlist eth0 scan" on the XO-1,
so it is as if Sugar 0.82 is filtering it.

Test configuration: two XO-1.5 build os123, one XO-1 build 802.

Test method: boot each, "Create new wireless network" on an XO-1.5,
monitor other XOs neighbourhood view.

(Aside; the XO-1.5 shows an icon for olpc-mesh).
