Good lord no. This is a hack to make Mixmaster still run with some
semblance of security.
IMO: 'State of the art' in deployed or close-to-deployed would be
Mixminion replaced with Sphinx as a packet format. Pynchon Gate is
also state of the art in nymservers, but is undeveloped.
There's also an unpublicized twitter-based remailer system using
Sphinx I believe. I can't recall which academic published it in the
last 2 years, but I swore it was a fairly well known person who had
put it on the back burner before developing it more...
