Its a SOCKS-->HTTP translator of sorts. In other news, I updated the
"Firefox Performance with Tor" entry to reference the FasterFox plugin, and
removed the reference to the Squid proxy acceleration procedure that we all
deemed a "bad thing" several months ago. 
    In other news, speaking of ETM, There is a mirror plus other documents
at http://anonymity-portal.us.
