how about "built-in geoip code". Vidalia and TorK are currently using
geoip services from external sources. Rather than implementing this
feature server-side and routing requests through the tor network,
every client/node can _have_the_option_ of downloading an updated
geoip database from a trusted source and using this would-be
client-side implemented feature without recourse to external sources

A) detect "the other" node's country (to filter Exit Nodes perhaps
using a ExitNodesCountryCode and StrictExitNodesCountryCode options in
B) adding a "CountryCode" descriptor to their own directory
descriptors to be identified by clients with no geoip database.
