Cover traffic is only there if the tor instance(s) also run as relay.
In that case to be fair they should be declared a family. And then, one
could also run *one* tor node for all users with the appropriate
multiple of the allowed bandwidth, which should attract about the same
cover traffic as if you run a tor instance per user with less bandwidth
per instance.


Kind regards,
