FWIW, mosh has a decent security reputation, though I don't know how
secure they are personally.  According to their paper, they're using
AES128 in OCB mode, which is basically kosher.  (If they *are* using a
modified AES, that's pretty scary.)

But yeah, in any case: if mosh is UDP-only, then it won't run over Tor.
