Ok, sure with that, but well the presumption is that security conscious
users would _want_ to be checking both the cert and the fingerprint.
That being the same sort of users that use Tor.
At least they should be doing that, given they care to use Tor.

Hmm, I think that's the same meaning as running 'separate daemons'.

Which is why this thread exists, as a suggestion that a SOCKS5
option to smtp would much enhance/solve things.

I'm rather certain Tor has a v6 ticket and active development
open at this moment.

We hope most, if not all.
