Please don't run an obfsproxy bridge with Tor 0.2.2 though.

Your clients will very likely be running 0.2.3.x, and they'll get bitten
by bug 4013:
which will be fixed in Tor (not yet released).

Even once they're running our patch, your bridge will still cause them
to downgrade to the older more cumbersome directory design, which will
delay bootstrapping.

So feel free to run your obfsproxy as an external proxy, but your
clients will like you more if you run it with Tor 0.2.3.x.
