Hi all,

does anyone know of any work to make a Python Only Tor Client, that just
enable to expose a Tor Hidden Service?

It would be very cool if it would be possible to avoid "Tor binary" as a
dependency for Globaleaks, making it pure Python application code.

The questions are:

- Are there projects that foresee to do something like that?

- From a Tor Project perspective, does it make sense?

- From a Security perspective, are there strong security implications in
doing so?
