(Note, the German meaning of 'Tor' mentioned in the FAQ is discussed
in the "A Peel of Onion"
paper, the Turkish meaning is apparently a fine-meshed net.)

Awesome, that kinda makes sense, tough, given that Tor is THE onion
router, I think referring to Tor as TOR is still accurate :)

No, Tor is not "THE onion router". It's _an_ onion router :)

You should rather say Tor is not _the_ onion routing, it's _an_ onion
routing: cf. p. 129 again---except this is not the 'the' of definite
description but the 'the' of "The original and still the best". (I got
this phrase from Roger Needham in 1993.  He was talking about BAN
logic, and said he got the phrase from a shoe polish tin.)

aloha,
Paul

"The original and still the best" is what THE means to me :) Though [ing] vs [er] seems debatable since Tor is a thing that does onion-like layered routing.

But, to understand more, are the other onion routing projects implementing their own onion routing protocol or are they implementing Tor? I could investigate this myself but I don't know enough to figure out the difference unless explicitly stated.
