     Yes, that's another very important point.
     Requiring someone to run an exit server when all they need is a client
would seem quite out of line with the tor project's point of view as given
on its web pages, too.  They point out that even using tor only in client
mode still contributes to everyone else's anonymity by adding more traffic
to the mix (the "safety in numbers" effect).
