This is great!
I started trying it out and reviewing it. I'm planning to improve it
this week until it writes geoip and geoip6 files that we can then place
into src/config/. (And I'm thinking about using the same file in
Onionoo and dropping city information there, for simplicity.)
Thanks for starting this!
