Actually there are people willing to work toward a technical solution that
consists neither of removing Torblock altogether nor of the status quo. See
e.g. the comment in the current Wikitech-l thread by Chris Steipp (WMF security
engineer with actual expertise in this area, who has worked on e.g.
authentication, checkuser, other admin tools for combating abuse...):
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/wiki/wikitech/420122#420122 
(As Chris mentions there, I am personally still unconvinced that these ideas by
TOR's Tom Lowenthal will lead to a viable solution; I hope I will soon find the
time to explain why. But at least it's an interesting, smart way to think about
the issue.)

Therefore I reopened the bug, to avoid giving a wrong impression of the current
consensus.
