Currently Plinth allows the user to:
1. Configure PageKite.
2. Install ownCloud.
3. Add XMPP accounts.
4. Some very basic system configuration.
5. Run diagnostics.

Tor is configured to run as a bridge with obfsproxy. It is not an exit
node. It isn't set up to automatically route other traffic through Tor
yet, but you can configure an application to use the SOCKS port.

dnsmasq and IP forwarding work as expected for clients on the LAN.
Privoxy works, but it also requires some browser configuration
