We probably want to write our own HTTP proxy designed to work well
with Tor*. Of course, the obvious answer to this is "go on then". Not
for the next 10 weeks at least I'm afraid.

If anyone else wants to have a go, it's a useful project which is
disconnected from needing to understand the main Tor codebase.

[*] That means talking SOCKS5 and parsing the extended error codes
etc. Might also want to have a look at the control protocol and see
what fun things could be done.
