 We just merged #25226 so relays can kill circuits that queue up too many

 But we're nervous about picking a threshold that isn't super high, since
 there's no feedback about whether relays are hitting this event in the
 wild: the logs are protocol-warn, so nobody, not us not them, will even
 know if it happens.

 teor suggested that we could tie the circuit killing into the DoS
 heartbeat logs. Something like "and I killed x circuits that had too many
 cells queued".

 This sounds to me like a great idea.
