Thank you. I understand that this is a *crypto* party discussion - but I 
really hope the end result of this manual focuses on use cases and 
threat modeling as well as the technology. Some ideas of security rely 
far more on technical contortions than real life assessment, the 
equivalent of entering a crowd wearing a flame retardant SWAT suit 
instead of just taking an alley. Secure anonymity is frequently the dead 
opposite of security based on trust networks such as pgp signed emails 
which depend on a real life identity being known and completely remove 
deniability or ease of frequently switching identities.

Let's not lose track of the end goal, which is security not just 
security tools.

All the best,
