Why was `always-confirm-transfers = 1` not the default in version 0.10.0.0?

I can't tell you why it currently (version 0.10.0.0) is not enabled by default. However, about 10 days ago I filed an issue (#1058) for this on GitHub. Meanwhile, it seems there's a pull request in ...

Why are do some addresses on the Monero testnet begin with '9' and others with 'A'?

Prefix is fixed in that the first (AKA network) byte is fixed to 0x35 for testnet. When encoding to base58 to get the actual address, the first 2 characters will vary depending on what follows after ...

There are a few. core_proxy is one. The clt and srv in net_load_tests are others. The C++ functional tests is another. I think that's the whole list.

Is it possible to have a full Monero node, a Monero testnet node, and an Aeon node all on the same VPS?

Aeon has not yet integrated LMDB so the 2GB RAM is probably not enough. Although it should work (slower) if the swap is big enough.
