[tor-dev] .onion name resolution with Blockstack

I have written a PoC for using Blockstack names to resolve hidden
services. Blockstack is a portable decentralized naming system that
currently runs on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. Similar to systems like
Namecoin, each Blockstack node retains a 100% replica of all name state,
including mappings between globally-unique human-readable Blockstack names
and the .onion addresses they resolve to.
The code and tutorial is hosted here: https://github.com/
It works by using the Python stem package to rewrite the target address of
a stream from a Blockstack name to a .onion address (similar to how Jesse
Victors' OnioNS system works). We plan to add support to the stdin/stdout
protocol in Prop279 as well.
