Transitioning AREDN to a more modern mesh technology

I've noticed in conversations about AREDN that people feel OLSR is getting a little long in the tooth and that a switch to something more modern would be a good idea. Obviously this is a difficult technical and human challenge as no one wants to relearn everything and no one wants to destroy what's been built so far. Given this, here's my proposal on how this could be done without disrupting what currently exists. Would really appreciate feedback.

Transition, etc.

For those of you who may not be aware, Tim is the ham who developed a patch for mitigation of OLSR routing storms.  We're testing a prototype version of the AREDN code with that patch incorporated in Southern California with good results.  He apparently knows his stuff :-)

I am willing to help.
If it would help, I am willing to try your code on my spare devices.
I have Nanostations and SXTsq-HP5nd and LHG-HP5nD available for testing.

I'm not knowledgeable on how

I'm not knowledgeable on how to work on OLSR or its replacements, but I have a substantial cache of nodes that I could test the patched firmware on.

Thanks for the work on this

Thanks for the work on this Tim! (Nice to meet you the other night BTW). I've done some exploration on this as well. I'm fairly confident that the A.L.F.R.E.D. utility for BATMAN-ADV requires IPv6 (But, is SUPER cool!)

I'd really like to further explore the use of BATMAN-ADV + BMX7.
