Maybe there's no need to give my hash to globe. I checked with arm and
it sees _outbound_ connections. Is that evidence enough that the bridge
is used? My standard-relay doesn't see any outbound connections (though
relaying lots of data of course).

Would be nice if somebody could confirm that outbound connections in a
properly configured bridge mean that it is actually _used_ already.
