Hmmmm I was told before the v3 control port work by Donnacha that for v3
support, HSFETCH won't be ncessary...

It is the main reason it hasn't been done that is for a lack of use case. The
HSFETCH for v3 is much more tricky in terms of engineering and interface thus
we decided to implement it on the "need it basis".

If OnionBalance actually needs it for v3, then we should try to get that on
the roadmap.
