Is this a general call for feedback/questions?  If so, what do you have
in mind for Pluggable Transports?

Currently I can count on zero fingers, the number of PTs that honor
hibernation state, or that have provisions for something like a
hibernation state.

I assume that if this was to be solved, the hibernation code would need
to tear down/respawn PTs, or someone needs to design an out of band IPC
mechanism between tor and PTs that can signal hibernation status.

The current approach to this problem involves toggling `DisableNetwork`.
