Well, I guess, even if the only clients were RIOT developers, it would
already worth the effort... not that cool, we could do better, but probably
would already pay the price.... and the ways to implement the adaptation
could be highly dependent on it.

disagree because this specific point may impact the way the adaptation will
be made. If you decide the public is just the RIOT development team... and
you don't care for the second class of users (what is completely fair),
more "home made" and code dependent options could be considered.... , for
example, we wouldn't need something that is fairly independent of versions
of ns-3.  You could fix your code over, lets say,  version 19 and that is
it would be more than enough for you.

Ok, I think I get your point. In short: within or without the ns-3 context,
RIOT's goal is to provide a platform that (distributed) IoT application
developers can build upon. So we do not only aim at the RIOT devel crowd
and we do care a lot about other users ;)

So what is the impact of this on the "how" to port RIOT on ns-3, in more
details? In particular, we do need to be as independent of ns-3 versions as
possible, in my opinion.
