The code monkey inside me doesn't see any code-quality-related tickets
in that URL. stegotorus boasts 12k LoC of C++ and some of that code
was written in haste. Looking at this from a deployment point of view,
I feel much more relaxed and easygoing with deploying programs written
in a high-level language (like Flashproxy or pyobfsproxy) than with
deploying an unaudited C++ program with many bad code moments.

I think that a trac ticket with a bit of research on how painful would
be to write a deployable <high-level language>-port of stegotorus
would be a good idea. I know that Zack is also interested in exploring
this avenue.
