Could you elaborate on that last statement?

AFAIK, this feature has not been advertised at all yet because 0.2.4 is
still unfortunately not stable.

The initial idea was to be able to support access through a single
hidden service to mass-hosting platforms, think of all blogs at
*.wordpress.com or *.noblogs.org. Why would the longer onion addresses
be a problem in that regard?
