[ns] regarding buffer sizes in routers

In looking at the code in drop_tail.cc, I see that the limit_ variable,
which is the size of the queue in packets, is then really just
multiplied by mean_pktsize_ to generate a value in bytes.
After tracking it down, mean_pktsize_ is set to 500.
I am wondering why this particular value was chosen, as well as what a
common value should be for limit_ (the default is 50).
Any input/discussion would be welcome,
