 distributed and then ship it in alphas?

 I don't think so.

 > The proxies (snowflakes) are run by random internet users in uncensored
 regions.  They just need to navigate to a certain website and then their
 browser takes over.  Distributing it widely means hosting the badge on
 say, torproject.org, or some other highly trafficked site.

 Yes, let's do that. What I want to avoid is alpha users having basically
 zero chances of getting a working Snowflake and coming instead to us
 claiming it is broken.
