I've even been pondering crazy hacks at this point like exporting moria1's
bwauth file to a second dir auth, so it gets to vote twice and we're more
likely to have the required minimum of three opinions for each relay.

(This is a terrible idea, but we're in the realm of terrible ideas at
this point.)

Another terrible idea, while we're at it, is to disable the active
measurements and go back to self-advertised weights by the relays.
