Another way to add a layer is to use a virtualization.  I'm going to be
converting my tor server to Xen shortly anyway (for another task it
does), so tor will probably get its own VM, for good measure.  It
already has its own IP, so it's pretty straightforward to do.

I've also seen some valgrind comments in the source.  Not sure if any
static analysis tools like clang are used.
