 The bundled version of obfs4proxy in Tor Browser is super old on macOS
 (and probably other platforms) - v0.0.5, from April 2015.

 It predates the meek_lite feature which was introduced in v0.0.6 in 2016,
 and the latest version is v0.0.7.

 OnionShare depends on Tor Browser for macOS and Windows (we fetch the tor
 and obfs4proxy binaries from your package and re-bundle them into
 OnionShare so that the user can use 'bundled' Tor mode, instead of having
 to have Tor installed globally or Tor Browser running in the background).

 But the old version means that our meek_lite PT support doesn't work on
 those platforms, only on Linux (where the user is assumed to have
 installed Tor globally as a dependency to the package).
