I've removed all trace of the word 'middleman' from the code, the docs,
and the sample torrc file. So the only place you'll be encountering
it is somebody else's docs or an old torrc file if you're using an old
0.1.0.x one. Are there places that I missed?

The new phrase I use is something akin to "not an exit node", which is
hopefully an easier distinction.
