If we do a ReducedCircuitPadding, we should have a way to specify which padding machines are acceptable for use when it is set.

Replying to nickm:

I don't understand.
This ticket is #28693, and it's not implemented.

I still think we need a CircuitPadding option.

For example:
sbws doesn't want padding on its circuits, because padding interferes with bandwidth measurements.
