[Ns-developers] Starting to add code to ns-3

I have worked a project forked from ns-3.9 stable, and the code is now ready
"enough" that I'm starting to port it to ns-3-dev. To get started, I put my
first, relatively trivial preliminary patch up on rietveld and I think cc'ed
ns-3-reviews properly with upload.py.
(0) So far, so good? The ns-3-dev contribution process is pretty convoluted
(way harder than the Linux Kernel, for instance!), so I'm not sure I'm
remotely close to following the right steps. I didn't see any patch comment
style guide, so I just used Linux Kernel style.
(1) I think I updated the python bindings properly, although I had to
manually grep **/*.py for code that used the module and then run ./waf
--apiscan=<module> for each result. --python-rescan did *not* detect changes
in the type signatures of the relevant functions. Is there a better way?
(2) What other feedback?
