I am programing a layer 3+4 network protocol for mesh networks (see ). My idea for uplinks is basically
to run application level gateways which do not put the uplink operator at risk
(e.g. tor bridge, socks proxy limited to openvpn port, gnunet, ...).

Integrating tor should be rather straightforward: run a bridge on the uplink,
run a tor client on client and tell the tor client to use a bridge at
localhost:someport (my program will then route it to the next bridge)

More advanced stuff would be:
- run a bridge for others while using a bridge as an uplink (ip whitelisting
would not allow this at all)
- import the list of bridges into tor so you get more resilience if some
bridges are not working properly
