I have been considering such a project, though my purpose for pursuing it would
be to both learn Python and to come to a better understanding of the internals
of Tor. Perhaps not the best circumstances for a solid implementation...
For the time being my implementation is just going to be an experiment with
trying to speak the Tor protocol, but assuming that I can get some of the basic
building-blocks working I'll be pursuing a Tor rewrite in my spare time (I'm
currently a student, and as such still sorting out my schedule). I'll
probably be in and out of IRC and these mailing lists asking questions
every now and
again (and trying not to ask stupid ones).
