With 25+ perfect-privacy routers in the network? I would say they 
are built on top of the Tor. They don't all declare the family 
option either but that is another matter.

I would gladly if I knew enough about it, and I will if this thread 
produces a reasonable reply. 

As a user I read the designer/developer provided documentation 
trying to understand the system and trust their judgment/word when 
it gets too deep for me to understand it. Not all of your users are 
academics with PhDs.  Every other configuration is there in the 
FAQ, compared with Tor, so I don't understand why these type of 
services are excluded from the comparison. 

I did not post the question here as soon as it occurred to me. I 
have spent considerable time reading around, including the entire 
or-xxx archives to find such a comparison but found nothing except 
(elsewhere) unproven claims and counter-claims from users or haters 
of such systems. 

Thanks for your reply.
