It's not hard to set up the kind of transparently-redirecting VM I think
you're describing; I've done it with Fedora 7, but I've never tried to
optimize it for size.

You'll need:

* A development-branch copy of Tor (stable doesn't have the transparent
redirection port implemented;
* The script and directions on this page:

If you do that, though, be very careful with software downloads and
updates inside the VM. Anything that's not digitally signed, could
potentially be backdoored by an exit node.
