Description

When setting up Vidalia to act as a node, my experience has been that people aren't always sure whether to be a bridge or a middle relay. Unfortunately, they *also* aren't always sure what their internet speed is. Detecting speed and then making a recommendation (or making a default selection based on speed), could improve network performance and usability without the decreases in anonymity posed by Snader (2008).

(This could be perhaps considered a corollary to #9323, where contributor uncertainty could be solved with semi-dynamic node type selection).
