Probably a bad idea; that file is deprecated in 0.1.2.x and later in
favor of the state file.

Hm.  I suppose we could tweak the check in
decide_to_advertise_dirport() to be a little more subtle.  Roger, any
thoughts on that?

Alternatively, if you're feeling hackish, you could just edit the code
in decide_to_advertise_dirport and make it do what you want.

I'm not sure what you're trying to measure here.  You can get
information about ongoing bandwidth usage by connecting to the control
port and asking for BW events, but that's a little trickier.
