To tries to recognize when random DNS queries are being hijacked by ad
pushers, but i dont think it can tell when specific sites are blocked in
this manner.  Would it be possible for Exit Node operators in such an area
to have a switch they can set to reject DNS queries through it but still
accept exit traffic? ServerDNSTestAddresses seems to change the entire exit
policy if specified domains fail.
