I can see the multiple scenarios, but I'd make one quick comment about
the pkgsrc Tor Browser. Last I looked, it wasn't TB, but rather a
different thing completely.  Firefox ESR is completely customized for
Tor, as are the add-on requirements. If someone from pkgsrc wants to do
a TB port, I would strongly suggest they fork our code.

Running anything but a TB port for a graphical http client is dangerous,
