Thanks much for the help. If my modest Python script used to download
some web pages goes through Tor, is there a way for the remote web
server to somehow trace this connection back to me?

FWIW, the web server is run by people who do care for their data (they
sell company listings for a living), but aren't l33t hackers either.

Can you elaborate? After compiling the Ports, a "_tor" user is
created. I could successfully launch Tor by "su - _tor".

Thank you.
