In #28693, we will implement a tor option for circuit padding.
When that option is implemented, we should set it to 0 in sbws.

sbws doesn't want padding on its circuits, because padding interferes with bandwidth measurements

Take some wtf-pad stuff out of 041-proposed

Keywords: changes-version-patch added

Add keyword to tickets that imply a change of version patch, since it might affect the results, but in a backwards compatible way and doesn't add functionality.

The CircuitPadding torrc option has been merged to master, FYI (#28693). This can be implemented once swbs start using 0.4.1.

The actual padding machines we're implementing (#28634) only pad HS circuits, though, which sbws does not use. So this is not essential yet, even when 0.4.1 is stable.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
