Improve or replace TorFlow

Description

TorFlow is not so hard to game; we should make it harder to game, or replace it with something harder to game. Aaron, Rob, and Paul have some interesting preliminary designs for a Big Thing Indeed, but last I heard it still needed quite a bit of work. So is our best option improving the TorFlow we have today?

This ticket is tagged high priority and SponsorZ, but it looks like progress stalled over a year ago. Is this still a thing that needs funding?

Nowadays TorFlow is only used by the bandwidth authorities. As I understand it the bandwidth scanner is being reimplemented by Donncha...

If the question was 'does bwauth work need funding?' then I suspect the answer is yes, but not TorFlow.

Priorities and Severities in torflow are meaningless, setting them all to Medium/Normal.
