[tor-dev] Cute Otter == Tahoe-LAFS + Tor?

   I'm working on a project with the same goals (Stormy), but not sure 
what the status is for formalized Torstuff.

   For me at least I'm not interested in using Tahoe because it adds 
unnecessary complexity.  My work with users typically shows that people 
have learned or been taught how to use PGP/OTR, but don't have 
experience as sysadmins and don't have consistent access to advanced 
technical help.  It's also far beyond what most sysops actually need.  
For WikiLeaks, it might make sense.  But for The Dubai Times, it might 
not and the complexity is more likely to confuse/demoralize people.
