comment Is there any tunneling protocol that can aggregate multiple packets within a packet?
I am sorry, I don't find anything of relevance in that article. Could you be more specific?

@ChrisS I have no idea why you categorize this as a shopping question. It is a pretty straight forward yes/no question. I have updated the question to refer to the Tor protocol which proves that this is a relevant question to ask.

I am fine with this answer, I couldn't find anything either, except for Tor.

@NickW Thanks for the pointer. The fragmentation issue is relevant, but orthogonal. For example a 576 bytes MTU is legal, and would enable aggregating up to 15 packets in a jumbo ethernet frame (9000 bytes). A similar idea is used in Tor with packet cells.

comment OpenVPN vs. IPSec - Pros and Cons, what to use?
I have a hard time taking the "by far faster" argument put forth in many answers. Encryption overhead for AES surely must be negligible.
