Comment(by Sebastian):

 Replying to [comment:4 rransom]:
 > Only Tor 0.2.1.x and earlier still use the v0 hidden service directory
 protocol; Tor 0.2.1.x stable versions also try to use the v2 HS directory
 protocol, so breaking their v0 HS directory support shouldn't hurt them.
 Unfortunately, if we want to make clients stop extending circuits to tor26
 in order to use it as a v0 HS authority, we will need to change tor26's v3
 long-term identity key (so that clients will not be able to extend
 circuits over existing links to tor26).

 And if we do that, old clients will still forever mob us to get the key
 they want, I assume. Fun
