Last time I tried, combining Tor + sftp mounted by GNOME's "Connect to
server" worked quite well. Inserting transparent encryption into the
loop was a failure (very poor robustness, much too frequent
disconnects), but I only tried gvfs-fuse + cryptkeeper (EncFS).

I don't know if the root cause of the failure I faced was the slowness
of Tor vs. lack of robustness of the tools, the depth of the stack,
any used component or a combination thereof.

In any case, I doubt Tor itself was the root cause of failure, so this
is getting a bit off-topic IMHO. I'd be happy to hear (off-list?) of
better results achieved by others.
