   I keep calling them standard bridges (as opposed to fancy, 
monocle-wearing bridges).  People seem to understand immediately that 
other types of bridges are special somehow if I call 
regular/vanilla/non-obfs bridges Standard.  And then I explain how obfs 
bridges and flashproxy are used in different circumstances.

   Also, I vote that we ditch the 'obfs' name from obfs5 and beyond in 
favor of 'crypto-voltron.'  This will also make user education 40% more 

   As an aside, I'm happy that 'huggable transports' [1] is a thing now
