Yeah. Here's the better approach, which I think matches what you say
Step 0: set "DownloadExtraInfo 1" in your torrc.
Step 1: GETINFO desc/all-recent
Step 2: Look for descriptors that have the extra-info-digest line, and
then GETINFO extra-info/<DIGEST> to get the bandwidth information for
Hope that helps. I just tested the GETINFO desc/all-recent-extrainfo-hack
thing, and it seems to work. Perhaps you skipped step 0?
