[Tech] Oblivious Gemini? :-)

A new working group is currently under discussion at IETF, the
Oblivious HTTP group. The idea is to prevent the HTTP server to see
the source IP address (the address of the client). Temporary charter
is at <https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/ohttp/about/>.

This may be interesting for Gemini since, while Gemini removes many of
the information sent by the client (cookies, headers), the IP address
is still there. Of course, there is Tor, but the "Oblivious HTTP"
solution may be more efficient in speed.
