As I wrote in the context(!) that my quote above was taken from, 
sensible configuration defaults are those which bring privacy-related 
functionality that is already mainstream among geeks.

Is it mainstream among geeks to use Tor with its default configuration 
it the official Debian package?

If it is, then great: Just say that!  If not, then please tell what 
needs adjusting!

Since I {joined] this FreedomBox project I have [encouraged] to propose 
concrete package selections and concrete configurations, but seen 0 
(zero) of those so far.  If they appeared and I just didn't see them, 
then please do point me to them: I believe such concrete proposals are 
really really helpful for progress.

...and no, you don't need a DreamPlug to do that.  Just use *any* Debian
