>Is it sufficient just to add a new GETINFO command?
> GETINFO ip-to-country/126.96.36.199
> 250+ip-to-country/188.8.131.52="US","USA","UNITED STATES"
Other commands that would be useful:
1. 'getinfo servers/[COUNTRYCODE]' giving a list of servers with that
2. setconf ExcludeCountryCodes
3. setconf IncludeCountryCodes
But why not absorb the countrycode into the server descriptor and have it
assigned by the authorities?
- prevent possible partitioning attacks arising from different versions of the
geoip db floating around (if bootstrap versions are supplied).
- save bandwidth (the db would be shared by authorities only)
- save client/relay processing power
