Just something I'm curious about: Is there any use case for having
multiple TorVMs? Anyone out there currently doing this?

I think the default stream isolation settings probably mean it is
useless to have multiple TorVMs, but I'd rather ask than merely assume,
in case there's some advantage I haven't considered.

Nope, I haven't heard of this.

With a custom configuration using multiple stream isolated ProxyPorts, I can't
see a need to do this.

Moreover, it's important that you don't run Tor over Tor as it doesn't
provided any benefit and is considered harmful.

Abel,

Thank you for your reply. However, the discussion on this topic has
since moved to qubes-devel:
https://groups.google.com/d/topic/qubes-devel/le7-Rrq6yxY/discussion

I'd be interested to know whether you are at all swayed by what is in
that thread.
