Comment (by mcs):

 Thanks for working on this.  The revised patch looks good (and brade and I
 tested it a little).

 One thing we will need to keep in mind:  the update service (in the
 browser) only has support for one "detailsURL".  That means that a 4.0.x
 user who is running Mac OS 10.8 or newer will also be pointed to the same
 detailsURL as one who is running 10.6 (https://www.torproject.org/TODO-
 mac-manual-upgrade-info) in your sample config.yml file.  So we will need
 to make sure that the content on that page makes sense both for people who
 cannot upgrade (32-bit system) and those who can (64-bit) system.  This is
 less than ideal, but we cannot fix the deployed browsers.
