 Thank you for creating a new mockup.

 When viewed at a high level, it is definitely clearer to have 3 radio
 buttons. But for the following reason that I mentioned in comment:10,
 Kathy and I do not think a radio button is the correct UI element to use
 * What do we do after a bridge is received via moat? The obvious answer is
 that the bridge configuration line will show up in the "Provide a bridge I
 know" text area. But that means that having a radio button for the moat
 interaction does not make a lot of sense; it is a short-lived modal
 interaction (stop what you are doing, interact with BridgeDB, done) rather
 than a state that needs to be maintained.

 Also, *not* using an overlay approach will require either a really large
 window or a small CAPTCHA image (and neither of these is ideal).
