[Ns-developers] Ipv6Extension (was UDPv6, missleading subject)

I did that because Ipv6Extensios and Ipv6Options are currently treated
independently, which they arent.
So my changes are:
- Add a relationship between Ipv6ExtensionHeader and Ipv6OptionHeader, with
the possibility to add Option headers to Extension Headers. This also
automates the Header alignment required by IPv6. (I implemented this some
time ago, based on the old IPv6 repo from Sebastien)
- Because options are often used to store additional information for
processing extensions, the independent processing of options does not suit
this very well. So I replaced the Ipv6OptionDemux by a list of Callbacks,
registered by the Ipv6Extension and called for each Ipv6OptionHeader present
(identified by the type field).

I prepared a patch based on the above repository which is included in the
I also uploaded the code change in Rietveld so it is easier to review:
I will be reviewing the code very soon. Tom, Craig, can you give a quick
review to the code?
Anyone else can review the code?

Is there any reason why he did that? reviewing the first code is enough
