    lambda: (darc.requests.null_session, darc.selenium.null_driver),
        'tor': (darc.requests.tor_session, darc.selenium.tor_driver),
        'i2p': (darc.requests.i2p_session, darc.selenium.i2p_driver),

The mapping dictionary for proxy type to its corresponding requests.Session factory function and WebDriver factory function.
