I would love to see this in place.

But how will this affect UDP and ICMP (for example NTP and ping).
Will those stop working when all traffic is routed through Tor?
Should it?

How will the Tor setup to listen to port 53 work with the already
existing dnsmasq DNS server also trying the same?  Which one get the
port?  Do they share it...

Happy hacking
