While we're at it, let's add security questions (with answers stored
ROT-13 encrypted in a world-readable file) to PAM.  And forward it to
random people.

Tor doesn't do anything useful.  Instead of forwarding through
ISP-owned trusted infrastructure, Tor also forwards through random
machines.  Connect to MySpace (unencrypted) and some random nut just
had your e-mail/password combo stolen, ripe for use on ... probably
logging into gmail first, to get your other passwords; then directly
into PayPal.

Tor has been successfully attacked so many times in the real world
it's not funny.
