Actually, it would be smarter to add a controller interface to let
the controller inform Tor of new opinions it should have. For example,
"this server is not running". Then we could do all the smarts in the
controller, where they should be.

The actual interface will be a bit delicate though, since we want Tor
to do some of the thinking and the controller to do other of the thinking.

As a first step though, we could make the controller changes sticky,
meaning that Tor doesn't do any thinking for servers that the controller
has given it an opinion on.

Any better ideas out there?
