TOS flags

i have been experimenting with TOS mangling with iptables, and setting
the packets for port 9050 and 9030 to be set as 'minimize delay', and it
does indeed seem to improve latency with tor.

it made me think that it would make sense to set this flag by default in
tor. low latency, is the goal of tor, high throughput is not. therefore,
for systems that have tcp/ip stacks which read TOS flags, which is to
say, most modern systems now, will prioritise tor traffic at the top of
the scheduler's list, thus eliminating one of the biggest problems with
