Comment (by arthuredelstein):

 Replying to [comment:3 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.

 I do hope #8405 will land soon. It seems to me that an authenticated
 control port ought to have access to all useful state in the tor process.

 > 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.

 Agreed -- sorry for the mess. :) I'm working on a patch.
