Proposals go to tor-dev, not tor-talk.

Before you re-send, you should check out the discussion (what there is
of it) on ticket #7553 at
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/7553 .  The major
concern at the time was the performance impact from a large number of
users all activating this option.  The discussion on the ticket has
stalled; it would be nice to reboot the discussion on tor-dev and try
to bring it to a conclusion.

In particular, if people think *this* is a good way to "maintain
separate identities" for something like web browsing, that's an
accidental DOS attack waiting to happen.
