As an aside, this is what I am currently using as a daemon config.
Comments welcome.

I'm trying not to use Guards because again it would be rude to hammer them
with vast data flows when instead the pain can be spread around a bit more;
given that my target deployments are unlikely to be truly anonymous (eg:
Facebook) this isn't much of an anonymity issue.
