Description

This ticket is to propose inclusion of Tor2web and Encrypted Services in default Tor build.

Both Tor2web mode and Encrypted Services are non-anonymous way of using Tor, either as a client, either as a server.

Given that this implementation at #2555 enable exposure of NON-ANONYMOUS Tor Hidden Service with the standard Tor software, i think that it make sense to enable also NON-ANONYMOUS Tor Hidden Service Client (ie: Actually compile-time Tor2web Mode) with the standard Tor software.

For both NON-ANONYMOUS Tor Hidden Service use-cases (Server and Client), we can build them in the standard version of Tor by adding a command line like:

--yes-i-know-that-i-m-going-to-use-non-anonymous-tor-hidden-services-client (tor2web mode)
--yes-i-know-that-i-m-going-to-use-non-anonymous-tor-hidden-services-server (encrypted services)

That way the Tor Hidden Services world will have it's NON-ANONYMOUS way to use Tor Darknet with the Server (encrypted services) and Client (tor2web mode).

Any application using Encrypted Services and Tor2web mode would greatly benefit from being enabled by default in the default Tor build.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
