[liberationtech] dumb question

About Haystack. I keep wondering, as I did when I first heard about this in 2009: 

Why bother creating something new from scratch when other, well-established services that seek to accomplish these same goals -- namely Tor, for my money -- already exist?

Serious question, stupid though it may sound.

What was Haystack attempting to accomplish that Tor has not accomplished, with years of very hard work from a comparatively large pool of developers and supporters? Am I missing something? Why did 2 guys think they could beat that, and more to the point, why did they feel they needed to?
