Idea: Using the SPDY protocol to improve Tor performance

it's questionable is SPDY is usefull at all.

Normally only few things changes if you visit a website seconds time
(stylesheets, javascriptlib, pics, etc. are static).
They are not delivered two times via http because they are cached in
SPDY didn't support any caching so a client that visits websites more
than once has to load everything again. Very bad.

If the caching problem isn't solved SPDY via tor would be worse than
http I think.
