Polly is usually very correct and on the dot with her responses. My only
disagreement with her in this message is that I would not mimic
the implementation of the NetworkInterface object. It was done at a time when
we were still learning ns-2, very early in the day, and the design reflects
our level of maturity at that time. It is due for an overhaul at some point.

She is, however, correct about the other stuff.
One more alternative to look at might be the TTLchecker object that
simply decrements the TTL in a packet. Your idea sounds similar to
any of these other implementations,
