What's interesting to me here is that you've phrased this as a "what if"
question - and, my answer is, "if I want to do this, I will fire up Tor, or
some other Proxy Network"

I _really_ hope that people are better than thinking this is an
all-or-nothing, zero-sum game; that for one network protocol to live, the
other network protocol must die.

We can (and do!) have _both_ anon, and non-anon connections.

And that's _okay_.

That would be coolness.

So: who knows someone at Github to approach about setting up an Onion site

I'll help.  :-)
