Absolutely. That was simply one of the easier targets to hit. :-)

I think that my next goal should be to review all circuit setups that are labelled CIRCUIT_PURPOSE_S_* - to look for which ones are being used to create the RP and IP links, and knock them down to one-hop.

That seems to be primarily rendservice.c and circuituse.c, but (to repeat) I am new at this and haven’t swallowed the codebase yet. :-)
