Hi Lucia,

I still think that this could be useful.  To make it useful, however, a
bunch of boring engineering and usability challenges must be tackled:
the executable should be self-contained, portable, and easy to use.  I
say "boring" because these challenges are usually not what students find
very interesting.

It's certainly fine to ask tor-dev@ for feedback.  I think several
people, me included, would be happy to provide feedback once you have a
prototype.  Good luck!
