You can use whatever routing protocol you want, creating a mesh on a
single frequency is a disaster at the radio layer.

I have seen some american researchers (in a slashdot article) that
managed to transmit and receive at the same time, but I cannot find
back the article.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
