You might want to stop that; 0.1.2.x has a lot of security

Right. 0.1.1.x is old.... though getinfo network-status *does* work
for me there.  It doesn't use the same format, though, and it can't
tell you what is an exit node.

You _could_ arrange for a long-running script to be notified of all
new descriptors as they arrive by using SETEVENTS to listen for
NEWDESC  events, but I'm not sure that's what you want.

No.  The former rejects all addresses in private networks; accepts
port 80, and port 443; and rejects everything else.

The latter just rejects everything.
