Hi, Antonio.
I had thought about performing tests with moving nodes at first, but
then I left them out because:
 * at ninux we don't have real moving nodes :) and, AFAIK, moving nodes
are not common in other wireless community networks as well
 * it might be not easy to repeat the test (i.e. walk many times the
very same path at the very same speed) for each protocol

BTW, is this feature already included in the "standard" batman-adv or it
does require a specific build? One of the rules [0] that was my feeling
to introduce (again for sake of community-network realism) is that the
routing protocol build and configuration should be the same for every
different test...

Perhaps we can leave mobility for the next Battlemesh?
