I'm interested in the ones on disk. I wish that "onions/current" would
give me the list of HSs that were set up via torrc, but this doesn't
appear to be the case. I'm basically looking for the raw command.

This is part of my overhaul of the Onion Name System (OnioNS) project,
which has actually been silently active. I wasn't able to finish some
components until the design was stable. Now that the paper is finalized
and has been accepted, I have been finishing the codebase. The server
software needs to know the HS address so that it can distribute it to
other nodes in the OnioNS network. My to-do list is quickly diminishing
but I did run into this snag and I wasn't able to fix it.
