figuring out what happened will likely involve looking at the directory
authority votes to see if anything specific happened. One theory might
be that the addition of a new bwauth has shifted which vote gets picked
for the consensus. It's conceivable that bwauths rate relays which are
placed topologically close higher than others. I'm looking forward to
any analysis someone might do on this.
