To be a bwauth you have to be a dirauth, if the bwauth draft spec I read
was correct. But how do you become a dirauth? The addresses are
hardcoded into Tor, so it's not like I could just spin up a dirauth in
an evening and let the network do the rest. There's got to be more to it.

I was interested in hearing the response as well, so...
