A thought re promotion of tor: if censorship goes into full swing in
certain (I'm thinking "western") nations, then eg a specific
"unsavoury" (libre) book, if one exists in the context of a particular
"unsavoury content filter" could be widely published for download on
many relatively mainstream websites - at least by those who wish to
promote awareness of the existence of the censorship - and this may
have a popularity-promoting effect on tor.

UK gov wants 'unsavoury' web content censored

http://j.mp/1iSJaPS  (Wired UK)

     The UK minister for immigration and security has called for the
     government to do more to deal with "unsavoury", rather than illegal,
     material online.
