Also, unless I'm going crazy, if you're using ad-hoc and are spanning
multiple nodes (in a 'mesh' style), isn't it necessary to have the same

Differentiation for point-to-point links can be done by channel (or ssid
if necessary), but it can cause it to be impossible to link if we all
have our own SSIDs.


Someone please flame me if I'm grossly wrong ;)
