That only works for a specific ip/port endpoint; I was wondering how to
get a list of all potential exits (say, everything with the Exit flag).
It seems like a service like WebIron may try to protect so many
endpoints that repeatedly querying TorBulkExitList.py for every single
one is impractical.

TorBulkExitList.py links to
<https://check.torproject.org/exit-addresses>, though, which is why I
asked about that.
