 Quoting that email from gk here:
 > bancfc at openmailbox.org:
 > > Hi. Are there any plans to include Privacy Pass addon in Tor Browser
 by default? Privacy Pass is the result of some great work by Ian and his
 team at University of Waterloo to spare Tor users the torture of solving
 infinite captchas from Cloudflare.[0][1]
 > That's not decided yet. We are still reviewing the extension in a Tor
 > Browser context.

 Based on that, changing the ticket title to reflect the task more
 appropriately. Moving some of the title into the ticket body, to keep that
