This work is already quite old and I don't know if it's still compatible 
to the current NFD. However, we added some fields to Interests in prior 
work. You can have a look at the implementation of those fields:


Please also have a look at all other occurrences of those fields in the 
CPP and HPP file. Otherwise you might miss important details.

Just as an disclaimer, it might not be the cleanest implementation, but 
I think you can get a feeling for what you need to do.
