[tor-relays] Heartbleed: Exchange of keys now or later?

Hi all,

the discussion during the last days was inconclusive to me: Should 
everyone who was using a vulnerable openssl exchange their keys right 
now/right after the update, or should we wait for some random amount of 
time as to not lose all the guard relays at the same time?

My guard relay went up in traffic by 50-100% since monday and I guess 
that is a sign that already now there is a lack of guard relays. Also I 
am not sure about the risks, given that probably the number of middle 
and exit nodes with safe keys is rising.
