True. But I'd rather use the Whonix approach. It's doable using two VPS.
That is, if the provider will cooperate. One VPS runs the web server,
and it has no Internet connectivity or public IP, just a private IP on a
local network. The other VPS runs the Tor client, and it has two
interfaces. One with Internet connectivity and a public IP. And the
other on the same local network as the server VPS. There's no routing on
the local network, just HiddenServicePort forwarding.

I'd rather just use Whonix. But this is for sure a lot lighter.

As others suggest, maybe OrJail, as with OrBot. I gather that TorBirdy
is OK, because it's a Tor Project app.
