That "open code" is somehow safe is a completely false myth. It is very easy to insert "bugs" that result in huge security holes into any "open code" project and we have seen more than enough examples of this to keep wearing blinders and pretend that "the code is available" means that the code is safe. "code is audited" means a tiny bit more. I would really like to see some truly independent audit. Such an audit could (like Tor itself) be funded using cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin so that governments can not easily prevent donations.
