Re: minimal traffic footprint Tor on the road

> Besides plugging DNS leaks, the two programs serve somewhat different purposes.

Indeed, however neither program's purpose is to 'plug dns leaks'.
They simply feed what connection [dns] requests they receive on towards Tor.
If the user's application this side of the proxy doesn't honor it's
own proxy/socks
config for all requests, that's leaky, and neither privoxy/polipo can do
anything about it.

If you want to be safe from whatever random app fires [or you fire] up,
and all their various requests... run in/behind/under some form of network
sandbox that catches all traffic and shoves it through Tor or sinks it.
