Yes, unfortunately quite a few people use it.
It hurts the network by endangering exit node operators, and
by completely ignoring any of the load balancing that happens

Just wondering if anybody from the Tor Project has contacted the author to express the concerns with tortunnel. Particularly about it being detrimental to the Tor network.
