     How so?  Any tor process, whether client-only, server-only, or client-and-
server, needs no more than one open connection to a particular tor server's
ORPort.  What would a tor process making connections from behind a NAT server
have to do with whether there were only one connection or were multiple
connections?  One of us, I think, is missing the other's point, but I'm not
sure which one here.
