I hereby submit the following PDF as a Tor Tech Report.
I'll be providing the various raw data files to github/torproject shortly.
Qualitative conclusions are the same. The methodology is more
rigorous than it was before, some quantitative differences. Most
* Lots of stuff in Tor increases exponentially.
* Absolute Torperf is increasingly nicely.
* Normalized Torperf (Torperf relative to non-tor speeds) increases glacially.
* There's statistical evidence that an injection of advertised
bandwidth would reliably improve Torperf performance.
For non-policy makers, I think the main contribution I am offering is
a list of the various Tor growth rates (page 4, table 2)
