Yeah, that's a cool project and it's something i really hope will
distribute a lot.

However Tor cloud it's still something that require you to:
- setup a new server (even if somehow easily)
- that you cannot control/manage unless you're a linux man
- eventually support some costs

The "Web world" (including webmaster, blogger, general poweruser) is
much wider than the *nix world and that kind of users already have their
own paid systems.

A webmaster would be able to setup on all his managed website the .php
file working as stateless bridge, all wordpress user would be able to
install it.

I mean, the user base and the simplicity of the procedure to get engaged
in supporting the tor network would be much more important if the only
action that a person have to do is:
- Load a .php file on a webroot
- Install a wordpress application

People would be able to make intra-blogsphere campaign to install such
tools to support Tor circumvention tool.

So if "the masses" are able to install something extremely-simpler to
support "other masses" it would unlock the big power of crowd sourcing.

Even a dumb and lazy person, could be able to support quickly and easily
