What's the point of using Tor to mine?

Anonymous bitcoins.

Your own IP address will not be associated with the mining network traffic. When you receive your BTC, you will be accessing the network over someone else's IP.

That said, I'm thinking that the latency wouldn't be great for it, but maybe it would work.

Haven't tried. :-)

My pool is already providing tor hidden service for mining, see onion adddress on http://mining.bitcoin.cz. It works with latest poclbm very well, thanks to direct SOCKS5 support in the miner.

There are two main reasons for tor mining: privacy and ddos protection. Pool is using different (secret) IP address, so even when main mining interface is down, tor mining should work nicely.

from mining.bitcoin.cz:
Run your own CPU/GPU miner with the worker credentials you gave earlier, and connect it to following URL:

(anonymous mining over Tor network)
Only the newest version of poclbm miner have direct support for Tor mining at this moment.
