+Major items for 0.1.2.x:
+  - Directory guards
+R - Server usability
+N - Better hidden service performance
+  - Improve controller
+  - Asynchronous DNS
+  - Better estimates in the directory of whether servers have good uptime

+  - memory usage on dir servers.
+    copy less!
+N - oprofile including kernel time.
+Topics to think about during 0.1.2.x development:
+  - Figure out non-clique.
+  - Figure out partial network knowledge.
+  - Figure out incentives.
 Future version:
   - Limit to 2 dir, 2 OR, N SOCKS connections per IP.
   - Handle full buffers without totally borking
