Hum, i understand what you mean. it is more anonymous in the way that nobody 
expect your friends know you use gnunet and you can't become tricked.
I thought about the question of traffic analysis, and I think that with strong 
specific encryption between two nodes (strong RSA, or even OTP with IRL 
key-exchange, stegano of crypted datas in video-audio stream, we can imagine 
an infinity of parano-solutions :P), it is more anonymous to communicate with 
trusted-nodes, than exchanging and diffusing IPs over the net..
In all cases, let's give the choice to the user ! I'm actually looking at the 
CVS-source, and configuring the 0.6.1d.
