Damn this was a productive month! Berlin and a mad scramble at work 
were highlights. But those aside, I'm delighted to say my three month
slog to rewrite Nyx's connection panel is now done!
In the end I rewrote 2,700 lines of 'oh god, what is this?' into a
simple 700 line module. As mentioned earlier this was the most sizable
task left and, though there's certainly a lot more work to, it's all
downhill from here.
Few other quick tasks of note...
* Thanks to dev meeting discussions with David, DocTor now checks for
rapidly changing fingerprints. These often indicate malicious intent
toward hidden services. 
* Code reviewed some of Karsten's metrics-lib work (#17000). He and I will
soon work together on a comparison of our various parsing libraries. 
* Few small Stem fixes including 'use_mirrors = True' under python3 (#17083)
and reading files with Windows newlines from Tor's data directory (#17051).
