Description

All of the circuits predicated in circuit_predict_and_launch_new() have an option to configure them except hidden service server circuits.

This makes it hard to individually control predicted circuit creation, particularly because #17359 makes it impossible to turn off entirely.

This also makes it hard to scale hidden services by increasing the number of predicted circuits. However, predicted circuits cause more cannibalization, so it's hard to tell whether this is of benefit or not.

Moving this one out of 029 for now. ETOOMANY things for hidden service in 029 already and I'm not sure how we can address this one right now without some kind of measurement.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

Remove an old triaging keyword.
