Does the pure-Go implementation support NAT-PMP or just UPnP?

I still use tor-fw-helper when I hand compile Tor on obscure systems.
Generally this means a Novena board when I need a newer version of Tor
than is already packaged.

Also - does this mean that after many many years... that this new
version of tor-fw-helper be enabled by default at build time? Pretty
please? :-)

All the best,
