+the directory authorities so they can change the rate-limiting
+parameters globally across the network. Which parameter values improve

 <li>Right now Tor clients are willing to reuse a given circuit for ten
 minutes after it's first used. The goal is to avoid loading down the
 network with too many circuit creations, yet to also avoid having
