Do any controllers still use getinfo network-status?

Tor long ago had a "getinfo network-status" where it would cobble together a v1 "running-routers" style directory status for the controller. It's been deprecated in control-spec since 2007, and in (#21703) we made Tor issue a warning log message when you use it.

It has some weird side effects when you ask a directory authority for getinfo network-status, since it makes the dir auth recompute whether it thinks relays are running.

Do any controllers still use it? I cc a developer from arm, txtorcon, and tor launcher, and if they all say "no, what is that", I say we take it out in Tor 0.3.2.

Tor Launcher does not use this command (and never has, I am 99% sure).

txtorcon does not.

It uses GETINFO ns/all to set up its notion of Tor's notion of the current relays.

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