I have seen references to the idea of giving 'everyone' the option of having their router implement Tor.  And I mention this because I'd like to see more about this idea.  A modern router presumably has plenty of CPU power/memory capacity to do Tor.  And, particularly since we are entering the era of gigabit fiber internet services (for reasonable prices; say $70 per month), there will be an ever-larger number of people who will be in the position to host a relay node.  What's needed is to convince router manufacturers that they "must" transition to Tor-by-default routers.  Wouldn't we like to see a million high-throughput nodes appear?             Jim Bell
