Tortunnel is not a separate network, but (ab)uses existing Tor exits. My
guess would be that tortunnel users - client only - don't think a lot
about adding exit relays to Tor. It's not developed any longer, and I
don't think many are using it anyway.

I agree with Stephen that it's not "per se" a threat to the Tor network.

Have you looked at I2P? http://www.i2p2.de/techintro.html
It for example allows both users and services to specify their hop
length, and uses packet switching instead of circuit switching.
