Summary: Implement Proposal #265Load balance properly in the presence of padding overhead

Right now our #28634 padding machines do not need this. However, almost any other machine that sends more than a handful of padding packets will.

Also, these changes to the load balancing equations will improve overall network utilization, and we can use this same equations for load balancing onion service traffic, too.
