Hi Virgil,

Threads like this one will do better on tor-talk. Tor dev is about
developing Tor, not the place you go to talk about your topic because
the developers are there.

(Several people have pointed this out to me from previous threads, so
I'm taking the opportunity to actually say it on this one.)

And to add a bit of content here, long ago I maintained
but then I was wearing too many hats so it fell by the wayside.

More recently I revived it into
but then the same thing happened.

In my copious free time I'd like to write the "why else is Tor slow"
document, to follow the first one. Other fires are burning higher
lately though.
