Comment (by rl1987):

 I wouldn't be sure about this. What if user has `UseBridges 0 `in their
 torrc and some `Bridge` entries as well? In that case it is reasonably to
 assume they don't want to use bridges ''right now'', but want to have them
 ready in case network censorship happens. The same probably holds if they
 have `Bridge` entries, but no `UseBridges` entry.
