Not for strong anonymity at least. Many are closes source windows blobs
and generally weighted towards filesharing and vague vpn privacy claims.
Those are definitely the ones to avoid. If you can't see and change the code
it's not worth one bit of your time beyond cataloging it's 'features'
for possible

It's actually pretty easy and can run on modest hardware as a node.

Neither do, and neither are. You can shim both with onioncat to
some caveated win.

Phantom does this completely already, but is even more obscure.

On the IPv6 interop front, the only thing these projects need to code
is unique address in specific /48 bound to an IPv6 interface and mapped
to internal 80bit address [sub]space for transport. User will setup all those
interconnects. There are projects in the works...
