Comment (by mikeperry):

 There's another good reason to make this optional and also auto-disabled
 in the event of weird control port failures: patch #8405 might not be
 present in a non-TBB tor client that the user is pointing their Tor
 Browser at instead of the Tor client we ship. People do this when they
 want to mix their browsing traffic in with the traffic routed through a
 relay or bridge that they are running for better traffic analysis
 resistance, for example.

 There's also the Tails+Whonix control port filters, as well as Yawning's
 new control port filter. We should also gracefully degrade in the presence
 of those filters rather than barfing errors everywhere.
