I would be much much much happier with pushing a patch for Privoxy back
upstream, and then just shipping a privoxy config file that makes use of
the feature. (It will take a while before users are using the new one,
but hey. You can instruct them to use the CVS version if they want to
use your feature.)

Tor is not going to get into the business of supporting Privoxy,
especially a Privoxy fork that alienates the Privoxy folks from us.

If you want to fork Privoxy and distribute a modded version, Geoff,
feel free, but I don't want it in the Tor packages.
