 "Disambiguation" note: This ticket is about comparing pluggable transport
 protocols, not about writing down the steps for deploying pluggable
 transports (#4562).

 For [wiki:org/sponsors/SponsorF/Year2#6 sponsor F deliverable 6] we
 promised to "help SRI and red team design a roadmap for the scope of
 transports we expect need work."  This deliverable comprises the following

  * Talk to SRI and red team about the prototypes of various pluggable
 transports they came up with and include them in the roadmap.

  * Describe what security properties each of the transports aims to
 provide (i.e. what censorship techniques it aims to defeat).

  * Figure out how far along we are at each of them and what research and
 development roadblocks remain.

  * Prioritize transports by complexity and urgency of deployment.

  * Build a plan for how to compose transports appropriately without
 screwing up their properties.

  * For each transport, speculate about how easy and/or smart it would be
 to bake into Tor itself.

 Optimistically assigning this ticket to Steven, because he said he might
 be able to lead this deliverable.  This deliverable needs input from many
 Tor developers.
