Re: Tor speed

One of the great benefits (to me at least) of Tor is that it uses SSL-encrypted TCP connections to talk to the ORs.  These are sometimes the only way out through a draconian firewall at an employer or other institution. Wouldn't switching to UDP as the underlying transport eliminiate this benefit?
