For a non-exit node this will be OK. On this CD all DNS resolution is done 
through Tor, not UDP. If I did block UDP I would change the DNS resolution to 
use Tor's MAPADDRESS to give a fake address so the exit node ends up doing 
the resolution when the connection is made.

Should a Live CD provide exit node functionality? Currently my implementation 
rejects all exit requests.
