The python gr.buffer object is just a swig generated wrapper around
the gr_buffer C++ class.  The swig interface file is gr_buffer.i
See the docs at www.swig.org

You don't have to work with the CVS build, but given what you're
trying to do I think it would be a good idea.

Most of the methods of gr_buffer are not virtual, so just subclassing
it probably won't get you what you want.  The rest of the C++ part of
the system will use the base class methods (most of which are inlined
for performance).

Assuming that your strategy is to create a new implementation of
gr_buffer, the easiest way would be to create the gr_mybuffer.{h,cc,i}
files, and make sure that the classes defined by them are called
gr_buffer and gr_buffer_reader.  Then edit
gnuradio-core/src/lib/runtime/Makefile.am replacing the references to
gr_buffer.{h,cc,i} with gr_mybuffer.{h,cc,i} and follow the directions
in the top level README for a CVS build.  When configuring be sure to 
use the --enable-maintainer-mode option or else the Makefile
generation rules aren't enabled.

If you haven't already, I suggest you get the CVS code to build on
your system.
