Imo we _should_ check through the code for things related to the Named
flag, though, back through 0.2.3 or maybe 0.2.2. Reasons:
* Private networks never worked very well with older tors.
* Maybe there's some piece of obscure functionality that breaks
without naming authorities which we never tested on a private network.
