Well, I guess so.  We're hashing the bridge identity fingerprints.  From

    "fingerprint" fingerprint NL

       [At most once]

       A fingerprint (a HASH_LEN-byte of asn1 encoded public key, encoded in
       hex, with a single space after every 4 characters) for this router's
       identity key.

Does this mean we're safe here?
