Gah! Too many already used technical terms. By "onion key" I meant
here private authentication key associated with the .onion address not
private key for authenticating a relay in building a Tor circuit (the
prior, hence proper, usage and last vestige of the actual onions
giving onion routing its name).

Likewise, when I said "redirect" in my message, I only meant the address
rewritten by the HTTPS Everywhere ruleset and not anything else.

I hope that's all the distracting potential terminological confusions.
Now people can focus just on the confusions based on things I actually
meant to say ;>)
