Id worry more about the fact that somebody is willing to spend $75K/mo to
attack me than the fact that it might be possible to wiggle my time base a bit.
At that point, you *really* have to worry about other, more productive attacks,
such as social engineering (including spear phishing and bribery), or obtaining
a 0-day against something in your network.

Remember that the FBI has basically admitted that the most effective means of
uncloaking a Tor user has been browser 0-days, even though decloaking by pwning
a majority of the servers is possible....

(Seriously - if *you* had $75K/mo to attack somebody, what would *you* spend
it on?)
