When Tor needs to build a new path for a stream, it checks whether it
already has a circuit open that will work for that stream.  If there
is already a clean open circuit that could be used, Tor uses that.

It might be neat to add some way to indicate that some addresses or
domains shouldn't share circuits with others.  If anybody wants to
work on this (maybe as part of a gsoc project), that would be pretty neat.
