In practice there are several more priority features.
But - in principle, do you think Tor integration should be built into the standard client?

Would anyone place a bounty on this feature?

No, but if you want that sort of thing wrap it yourself, there's nothing to stop you.

No. It bloats the client's codebase and increase complexity.

NO! not a good idea! if you will use tor, use the proxy feature.
Im a fan of tor but i don't think you should blend it with bitcoin, its a reason to shut it down.
politicans/lobbysts dont like when people are anonymous, and its give them a another reason to fight us.

i only use tor+bitcoin when im at school because my school blocks many ports, and the simplest way around it is tor.

No, Tor should not be part of the standard client.  But feel free to start a fork.  I would suggest forcing the Tor client to use a completely different naming & default directory structure for the wallet.dat, but use the same internal structure for that.  So that a Tor client and a vanilla client can be used on the same computer without great risk of sharing keypairs.

This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

No. Entering 127.0.0.1:9050 into the proxy space is really easy. The client doesn't need to take any longer to start up :p

I think the idea is to have a client that can securely use Tor even if the user is otherwise unfamilier with how to use it properly.  So a client that has a secure, internal Tor proxy is a sound idea in it's own right.

I think it's a good idea if it could be done in a somewhat lightweight way.
