OK, we're thinking the same thing, but it really becomes a question of what batman-adv is going to do.  Assuming that every node is treated as a router, I'm fine, otherwise, not so much.  I'll poke at it and see how it behaves, and report back to the list in case anyone else is working on mesh networking.
