AFAIK, HiddenServiceNumIntroductionPoints >= 3 is also for the benefit
of the client, so if intro point #1 doesn't work for the client, it
can try to connect at intro point #2, and then finally at intro point
#3 before giving up. So let's say my Tor client looks up your Tor
hidden service descriptor and attempts to connect at intro point #1
and that fails. What would/should it do at that point? Give up?
