 I have some nits:
 a) Please keep the comment which was available above
 // torbutton_show_torbrowser_manual() returns true.
 needs to get reworded.
 c) If there is an error in `get_general_useragent_locale()` we should have
 some way of showing it (e.g. by emitting a message to the console), even
 if the usual logging functionality is not available in the module. I'd
 like to avoid omitting any kind of notification in such a case.
