I don't think this makes much sense -- there are already keyservers that
offer hidden services (e.g. qdigse2yzvuglcix.onion), but they are
individual keyservers.

providing a .onion frontend to the pool would be something very
different.  how would it work?  would it just proxy connections to other
members of the pool?  if so, it's basically acting as a tor exit node,
but a very specialized one.  is this a good idea?

or are you imagining it would do something different?
