 I set this to the parent bug of #24321, an attempt to add third-party
 software to Tor Browser (allegedly to make it more Cloudflare-friendly).
 Compare comment:241 above.

 Note:  If any party can successfully cajole or coerce the Tor Browser team
 to add arbitrary code to Tor Browser, then that would reveal an
 adversarial threat far beyond any discussed above.  I do not expect that
 the attempt could be successful.

 See also new child bug #24351 for a proposed workaround to this bug,
 inspired by https://bugs.debian.org/831835 (thanks, Anonymous!).
