Speaking of the law, what would be your legal and/or ethical 'spin' on the
proposition that someone would set up multiple Tor clients and sell access to
them as a feature of a subscription "anonymity" service? This scenario
assumes none of these "access points" are giving anything back to the Tor
network. That clients' SSH connections are simply being piped through a local
copy of Tor running in client mode.
I don't see where this would be "illegal" under the GPL or your own LICENSE,
but maybe I'm missing something. I believe it's ethically abhorrent to use
free software for profit like this, but I don't see any real recourse.
