I'm not brave enough to test :) I'm still evaluating batman-adv for
this deployment model and haven't even setup real hardware to test
yet. I think that I can live with a separate VLAN and PIM multicast
routing if need be plus I'd probably be running whichever batman-adv
version is in-kernel on ubuntu so that upgrades are more seamless so I
would imagine quite a long time until these patches make it in.

Currently, if 2 (or more) batman-adv nodes have 1 listener each (for
the same multicast group) then the packet will be flooded. Meaning all
nodes in the mesh will receive it.
I currently have two more patches for batman-adv open for further
testing to allow not just multicast-to-unicast conversion to a
single destination, but a multicast-to-multi-unicast conversion, too.
They are currently burried in here:
If you are interested and brave enough to try them then let me
know how that goes for you :-).
