Thanks James, this is awesome! Very well done. Out of curiosity why
sidestep any use of Stem? It supports encoding/decoding most tor cell

Yours: https://github.com/torpyorg/torpy/blob/master/torpy/cells.py
Mine: https://gitweb.torproject.org/stem.git/tree/stem/client/cell.py

If you'd care to integrate any of this functionality into Stem I'd be
delighted to work with you.

Cheers! -Damian
