Hm, we do not seem to monitor exit nodes over time (or do we?).
Looking at the tor.eff.org frontpage however there's an ad suggesting
that we were at 1755 exit nodes at one point. The current TNS sites
count only 584 exit nodes, a factor of three indeed :-\

Might this just be caused by some Tor code change leading to the TNS sites 
being unable to reliably determine if it's an exit node or not?
