PackMime-HTTP is based off of models developed at Bell Labs around 2001 or so.  To change the traffic behavior, you just have to change the models.  I say "just" because it's more an issue of statistics and modeling than programming.  Once the ns-3 version of PackMime-HTTP is written, it can accept whatever distributions you need to generate.

I would like the DelayBox and Tmix projects to use what has already been developed.  We have something that was working in ns-3.9 for the most part, but we need help in getting it upgraded to work with the current version.
