 Here is some feedback for the attached patch:

 1) I'd like to have an enhanced commit message. At least the bug number
 should be a part.
 2) I heard there were snags (comment:19:ticket:19001) like the need for
 `apt-get install curl pkg-config libgtk2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev`. I hit that
 one, too. This should be handled in our `check-prerequisites.sh` script.
 3) Snowflake is not working:
 2016/11/25 08:28:57 BrokerChannel Error: No snowflake proxies currently
 2016/11/25 08:28:57 Failed to retrieve answer. Retrying in 10 seconds
 2016/11/25 08:29:07 Negotiating via BrokerChannel...

 2016/11/25 08:29:07 BrokerChannel Response:
 503 Service Unavailable
 4) Is there really no way to avoid cluttering the disk with all that stuff
 to just build the webrtc part? Think about us builders who usually have a
 dev, hardened, alpha and stable tor-browser-bundle tree to get releases
 faster out.
