Only one way to find out, try it.  If one user can break the entire tor
network this easily, we're in deeper trouble than we realize.  At worst,
you'll be like the 149.9.x.x servers that were misconfigured and
re-routed all traffic out of one IP address (and freaked out a lot of
people in the process).
