Suggestion: generate new bridge lines automatically in tor-control-panel

Hi. Tor is blocked in my area so I need to use bridges. Bridge nodes are very unstable so they can suddenly turn off. Generally, there are two ways to configure bridge lines:

  1. obfs4 (recommended) - this option automatically adds generated obfs4 bridge lines to torrc file and then starts bootstrapping process
  2. Manually add bridge lines - very inconvenient. Need to visit Tor Project site every time and solve captcha in order to get new bridge lines.

But the problem is when I select obfs4 (recommended) in Configure menu in tor-control-panel, bridge lines are often remain the same. I’d like to always have a newly generated bridge lines every time I press obfs4 (recommended). Is it possible to implement this?
