The problem I see is that this technology will be used (literally, not ideally) solely for harassment (especially via IRC). I do not see any other practical use for this technology other than that. The whole "right to privacy/anonymity" argument is legitimate, but I do not see people using* Tor for legitimate purposes.
My legitimate use of Tor is because I object to companies following me around on the net. Yes, I block ads and reject cookies, too. I choose to not disclose my browsing to others. I get enough random commercial crap foisted upon me that I have no time or patience for the targetted commercial crap. To paraphrase Zimmerman's philosophy of PGP - you may be having a hot affair, or you may be doing something politically sensitive, but it's nobody's business but yours. As for an attempt at a technical control, maybe set up a box with Tor on it, get a list of exit servers and null-route them automagically. CK -- GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
