Leaving the specific question about co-supervising to David.

But did you already turn this idea into a proposal, or do you need
anything else from David or somebody else from the metrics team?

Cool!  Same question as above, did you already write a proposal using
the text I gave you, or do you need anything else from Tor people?

first see it in action and then have a student extend it in some way.
