The right question is "What the Chinese government
or TLA's can do controlling at leat the 25%
of network?"

For example, CN has comlete control over 1/64 of
 Tor network traffic, or abour 2%.

I understand that Tor has a lot of crypto in place 
 to defend against rogue nodes, also when they are acting

I understand also that too much configurable
 options in Tor can be problematic, from 
 a programming, a debugging, and a partitioning
 attack point of view.

But I Would be very happy to have a
 fuckNodeByCountryCode= in the
 config file. Guess my favorite value ...

Ciao.   Marco
