Although I'm not in a country like China, nor do I know a solution, do
know that I support any effort which makes Tor a better tool for
circumventing the Great Firewall.
The ability to exclude nodes by [approximate] geography would be a nice
feature; taking a look at TorStatus, I notice that the nodes (including
my own) are already identified with their country of origin.
