It worked ok for me for plain 802.15.4, never tested 6lowpan. The port of the
contiki 6lowpan implementation seems to be stuck a bit and various people  are
talking about getting it in but I haven't seen much code to fix it.

Sounds like a good chance to refresh your network stack experience. :D

I would like to see Dmitry pushing more of the stack upwards but it seems that
it is a private project from him now and no longer driven by Siemens.

I may will work on some bits here and there starting in april during my diploma
thesis. Pushing DTN on 802.15.4 further.
