getinfo bridge status
A user from China suggests at http://blog.torproject.org/blog/bridge-distribution-strategies#comment-3336 : "I have a fairly long list of bridges in my settings tab now, and I have no idea which are actually of any use to me, and which are dead. Would it be possible to have some visual indicator in the Vidalia bridge config dialog that shows which bridges are healthy and which are not?"
This is a great idea, and we should do it. Perhaps Tor should expose this info via a 'getinfo bridge-status' or equivalent, and then we can show which ones are configured, which we have a fresh descriptor for, which we've found reachable, etc. Once we've got the Tor side figured out, then Vidalia could ask for the bridge status when you open the bridge config window, and mark them as appropriate.
