Right. We have something like 900 Tor servers right now, and they're
trying to handle traffic from a few hundred thousand active users pushing
perhaps a gigabit of traffic each way on average. That's not a good
ratio. :)

Around a third of the available bandwidth is from exit nodes. So we
could sure use more exit nodes too.
