I've converted this text and a few other clarifications and additions
into something that more closely resembles a Tor proposal.

It now lives at:

I'm really rather excited about the Adaptive Padding primitives in
particular, especially with our extensions to the original idea. I think
it has a lot of promise to be extremely effective, tunable, and flexible
as a traffic fingerprinting defense.

Those of you who know just how crazy^Wambitious I am also know that I
think it will actually impede end-to-end correlation as well (at least,
for short-lived/bursty web-like traffic). But we'll cross that bridge
when it starts burning. First, let's put this traffic fingerprinting
problem out of its misery :)
