Hi!  I've made some design comments on that ticket.

To get new features merged, make sure that it's in the form of a patch
or a branch that can be merged into the current Tor git master branch
(where new features are added), and then either attach the patch on
the ticket, or add a link to the patch or the branch in a comment.

The doc/HACKING file[1] in git master needs some editing, but it also
has some good advice on what a patch needs and what format it should
have in the "Coding Conventions" section.
