[tor-talk] Reasoning behind 10 minute circuit switch?

Hi all,

I'm working on doing a study on user tolerance of delays (for example, 
latency on Tor).

During our discussion, a bit of a debate occured about the TBB's circuit 
switching. I was wondering if there's any research that's been done to 
arrive at the 10 minute window for circuit switching, or if that was 
number picked arbitrarily?

Thanks for the help.
