What about someone in a highly censored locale that wants to download a copy of Tails or TBB without "them" knowing?

For the record, my exit node does limit the ports as per the reduced exit policy [1] and I'd happily open it up wide if I could throttle just the torrenting to a minimally-usable level. However, I honestly don't think it's realistic to spend so much effort to solve the throttling of torrents when those efforts could be better spent elsewhere [2].

[2] No idea what would be better deserving but I'm sure there's plenty of work in Tor-project-land that doesn't involve throttling hard-target services.
