     3. The final gotcha is that user chargeback needs to be implemented
     in a way that doesn't open the door to traffic analysis.
     Even if we don't chargeback to users, the data flow info is useful --
     to Ivan as well as the network managers. I've been in law
     enforcement long enough to know how valuble telephone tolls are
     in tracking a smuggler and his activities -- let's not set ourselves
     up.

Get real. The door is already open to traffic analysis, and if (110 dB rattle
of saber) "Ivan" really cares, he's already doing it.

Chargeback is a totally orthogonal issue.
