OK, I'll bite.

Are you saying that experienced web engineers are not capable of designing systems with security and anonymity in mind, or that that there are generally hidden risks in setting up the Tor rendezvous connection to a local server?  We can agree not to trust random software architects/implementors, but I can say with confidence that my team is very competent and security minded (though new to publishing Tor hidden services).

More to the point, do you have specific concerns regarding the Linux/Tor/Apache/Perl stack we are using?  We do sanitize error messages to prevent Apache from leaking system information, but that's really the only special effort other than maintaining good overall system security.

What sort of vulnerabilities would you expect to see?
