Hi, Haining
    Perhaps you haven't understood what I mean. 
    Each marked packet should be treated as a congestion feedback signal, and it 
should reflect the "current" congestion conditions. If the packet is marked when it 
leaves the queue, it can better reflect the "current" condition, without a queueing 
delay. Otherwise, this marked packet only reflects the condition when it enters 
the queue.

>>From intuition, better performance can be got when action is taken in
>>deque(), ie., at the output of the queue.
>No, the packet should be dropped at the front end before any resource
>has been consumed. Also, the earlier you drop the packet, the earlier
>feedback you will get. Your intuition is wrong :) just take a
>second thought.
