allow Tor to parse bridge information copied and pasted verbatim from bridges.torproject.org
Currently bridges.torproject.org returns replies for copy and paste in the following form.
obfs4 ip:port fingerprint
This is easy for copied into tor-launcher. But one who wanted to copy this into its
/etc/tor/torrc would have to modify it to.
Bridge obfs4 ip:port fingerprint
This is a usability issue. Therefore, could you make for example
/etc/tor/torrc config option
obfs4 a shortcut to
Bridge obfs4 etc.?
Ideally, pluggable transports once they plugged into Tor using
ClientTransportPlugin would be responsible for running the code for setting up these shortcuts themselves so you don't have to maintain a static/outdated list of shortcuts within the Tor core.
