Pinger for anonymous remailers

Echolot-pinger is a pinger for anonymous remailers, which works by regularly sending messages through remailers to check their reliability. It then calculates reliability statistics which are used by remailer clients to choose the chain of remailers to use. Additionally, it collects configuration parameters and the keys of all remailers, and offers them in a format readable by remailer clients.
