The code should not exist at all, if you have a fast server you need to
waste so many IPs for Tor because it doesn't scale beyond one core and
doesn't let you run more than two instances on one IP. And it is still
unclear if this does help against any real world threats at all or if it
actually harms because operaters don't want to waste IPs and won't give
as much bandwith as they could without that limitations.
