Description

Unverified nodes sometimes have really weird bandwidth shaping, and they also sometimes have
really wrong clocks. So asking them for a directory is just asking for trouble, and there are
enough other mirrors that we should be ok.

Maybe allow overruling this default with AllowUnverifiedNodes ...dirmirror.

Also, similar to ExcludeNodes there should be a way to never ask certain nodes for a directory. maybe.
