Title: Making Tor2Web mode faster
Author: Virgil Griffith, Fabio Pietrosanti, Giovanni Pellerano
While chatting with the Tor archons at the winter meeting, two speed
optimizations for tor2web mode  were put forward. This proposal
specifies concretizes these two optimizations. As with the current
tor2web mode, this quickened tor2web mode negates any client
2. Tor2web optimizations
In the current tor2web mode, the client establishes a 0-hop circuit
(direct connection) to a chosen rendezvous point.
We propose that, alternatively, the client set *itself* as the
rendezvous point. This coincides with ticket #9685 .
Identical to the non-tor2web mode, in the current tor2web mode, the
client establishes a 3-hop circuit to the introduction point.
We propose that, alternatively, the client build a 1-hop (or
0-hop?) circuit to the introduction point.
