Where are you getting the "bandwidth is at least 4k" limit from? I am not finding it in dirserv.c.

Replying to nickm:

I have to admit that I blindly took it for granted from line 1714 in dir-spec.txt. I just remember that the exit flag is not given to a low bandwidth node regardless of its exit policy - which I think is very confusing and should be documented. But I don't know where "low bandwidth" is defined exactly.

I'll take an updated patch here if somebody makes one that's accurate.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
