See parent ticket for context.

We could use some automated tests that exercise clients in a certain predictable way (as described in the parent ticket), and record the directory bandwidth usage and non-directory bandwidth usage.

I think that we should do this on the real network, and not on a test network: otherwise, there are far too many ways that we can get it wrong.

I wonder if instrumenting onionperf to record these answers, and then tailoring an onionperf to have each behavior, is a good longer-term (more sustainable) approach here? Since we're going to need to be scripting *something*, and I'd love to have it be the case that whatever we do here, it is easy to do it again periodically to learn if anything's changed.

Remove Sponsor4 keyword, now that Sponsor4 is the value of the Sponsor field.

Mark a large number of tickets that I do not think we will do for 0.3.2.
