Description

We need to figure out a better name for this thing. Too many things related to tor have Tor in their name and it confuses everyone.

Too many things related to tor have Tor in their name and it confuses everyone.

No strong objections (it's not my project) but I'd suspect far more people are confused by names like vidalia and arm than they are by something like "torouter" which is... well, refreshingly descriptive.

An argument against torouter is that it will be misspelled frequently (maybe even in code?) because of confusion over torouter vs. torrouter.

I'd be a fan of making it TorRouter if we thought that it would make things clearer.

Otherwise, I sorta like the name TorNode :-)

Given this is no longer an active project, finding a new name for it is no longer a priority. See also #20747.
