I tagged all of the tickets that I've been writing proposals for, and
also a few more tickets that have been in the back of my mind for a
while but are still not very well specified.

I still need to find or file tickets for the following two items:

 * Defending against Hidden Service Circuit Setup Fingerprinting (the
   infamous MIT paper). This depends on Proposal #254/Ticket #7028.
 * Tunneling all directory requests through the main Guard. This
   depends on #12538.

If anyone is aware of tickets for either of these, that would be
helpful. I suspect ASN probably filed a ticket for the first one.

We have the "Points" and "Actual Points" fields for this. "Points" are
meant to be any unit of time appropriate for a given trac component, and
are the field for the estimate before work begins. "Actual Points"
specify the units of time the ticket actually took after completion, for
evaluation of estimate accuracy/drift/multiplier.

Popular choices for units of time for Points are "minutes", "hours", and
