 In #17840 and #9067 / #9068, we unified ReachableAddresses and
 ClientUseIPv4/ClientUseIPv6/UseBridges. We'd previously unified
 FascistFirewall, FirewallPorts and ReachableAddresses.

 This means that the functions called fascist_firewall_* should probably be
 renamed to be more descriptive.

 I think reachable_address_* is one option, but let's follow typical naming
 standards and not repeat words in names:
 * fascist_firewall_choose_address_dir_server ->
 * reachable_address_choose_address_dir_server ->
 * reachable_address_choose_dir_server

 Let's also use this as an opportunity to disambiguate
 fascist_firewall_choose_address_impl &
