Description

All we need to do here is to figure out whether anything breaks when using microdescriptors, fix it, and when there's nothing else big that breaks, change the default in config.c from "UseMicrodescriptors auto" to "UseMicrodescriptors 1".

There's now a branch for it, called "bug3560", in my public repo. But before we merge it, more people should test microdescs. "UseMicrodescriptor 1" in your torrc if you're a client, for fun and adventure.
