More Tor support available

I hacked more on Tor support in GnuPG.  All the DNS function have
meanwhile been replaced by wrapper code which will make it much easier
to resolve them via Tor.  The next step will be to add an ADNS based
backend for to the getaddrinfo wrapper so that a torified ADNS library
will take care of actually resolving via Tor.

In addition *.onion addresses are now directly supported so that it is
possible to retrieve keys anonymously.  Example configuration lines for
dirmngr.conf are

  keyserver hkp://dyh2j3qyrirn43iw.onion


  keyserver hkp://qdigse2yzvuglcix.onion

To make this work you need the latest GnuPG and Libassuan from Git.

Next steps are:

  - Figure out an algorithm for stream isolation (i.e. how often to
    change username/password).

  - Implement the mentioned ADNS backend for getaddrinfo.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
