 Looks great, but needs some more documentation.

 The man page should talk about ReducedExitPolicy under ExitPolicy:
 If you want to use a reduced exit policy rather than the default exit
 policy, set "ReducedExitPolicy 1". If you want to _replace_ the default
 exit policy with your custom exit policy, end your exit policy with either
 a reject *:* or an accept *:*. Otherwise, you’re _augmenting_ (prepending
 to) the default or reduced exit policy.

 The man page should document exactly what the reduced exit policy is.

 For example, here is the man page entry for the default exit policy:
     The default exit policy is:

     reject *:25
     reject *:119
     reject *:135-139
     reject *:445
     reject *:563
     reject *:1214
     reject *:4661-4666
     reject *:6346-6429
     reject *:6699
     reject *:6881-6999
     accept *:*

     Since the default exit policy uses accept/reject *, it applies to both
 IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
