 There are lots of little hacks in the final packaging steps to support
 zipaligning, zeroing out timestamps, v1 signatures and v2/v3 signatures,
 etc.  So by manipulating the APK, it'll make all those steps harder to
 deal with.

 > I wonder if we can build a single aar for this (where it includes all
 the libs), and then make copies of it and tweak each copy so it is arch-
 specific and only includes the needed binaries. Then we only inject the
 correct arch-specific aar into the firefox build stage. I'll open another
 ticket for this.
 The dependent aars include all architectures. So we aren't filtering in
 tor-onion-proxy-library, tor-android-service. Filtering is only occurring
 in tor-browser on master (although it would be best if we could filter at
 the firefox stage).

 > I opened #30199 for other review comments on tor-android-service.
