That's what I wanted to know.

I was thinking about something along the lines of having multiple egos
and wanting to "hide" the activity of each ego, to avoid associating
each of them with the same peer.  I thought the anonimity mechanism used
by FS could help, but I only know about it at a very high level, so I
don't know all the implications.

Thank you for clarifying,
