Comment (by saint):

 I wrote one for some friends a couple of weeks ago.  I agree that we
 should be shipping this as it makes it far, far easier for users.

 Name=Tor Browser
 Comment=Tor Browser is +1 for privacy and -1 for mass surveillance
 Exec=bash -c "export PATH=$PATH:`dirname %k`; start-tor-browser"

 This is tested and working in Ubuntu 14.04 with Unity (default).
