 Review notes for arthuredelstein's patch:

  1. For the `readBridgeIPs()` function, I think you might run into issues
 with "vanilla" bridges, which are non-PT bridges, and so they lack a

 let readBridgeIPs = function (controller) {
   controller.getInfo("config-text", result => {
     let bridgeEntries = result.Bridge;
     if (bridgeEntries) {
       bridgeEntries.map(entry => {
         let [type, IPplusPort, ID] = entry.split(/\s+/),
             // Drop port number of token[1] to get IP address.
             IP = IPplusPort.split(":")[0];
         bridgeIDtoIPmap[ID] = IP;

   Meaning a bridge line for a "vanilla" bridge, which looks like:

 Bridge 0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef01234567

   Would give you

 IP = "0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef01234567"

  2. The indexing done above in the `bridgeIDtoIPmap` appears to be case
 sensitive. BridgeDB hands out lowercase bridge fingerprints, but there is
 no guarantee as to case since tor handles either.
