Attached you may find a patch for adding a WillDrop method to the Queue class API. The patch applies to the DropTailQueue API and implementation also.

I added this method as I need to do actions right before a packet is going to be dropped. I guess this might be a common situation for some sort of protocol developments.

See if you have any comments.

I am not sure I understand what you want to use this patch for. Could you give some example use-cases ?

Thanks Mathieu for your time to review the patch~ ^^

I think I better withdraw this patch, as it is going to affects all sub-classes. I should make use of ObjectAggregation system instead if I need to extend the base class for my own use. 

Thanks again~~ ^^
