A pluggable transport can itself use a firewall-bypass proxy, so maybe the progression should go more like

  1. conn_pt
  2. conn_proxy
  3. conn_proxy_done
  4. conn_pt_done

The change would be to reorder the phases so the proxy phases are "inside" the PT phases. Last I checked, tor doesn't know about whether or not the PT client itself uses a proxy, so the PT would have to explicitly tell tor.

We can do the reordering now, or wait until we have a PT client interface that can report intermediate progress when using a PT tunneled through a proxy. ahf, which do you think is better?

There might be reasons to have these phases in any number of slightly different orderings, including the current ordering. I would have to refresh my memory about the current behavior to be sure.
