 There's a branch for review on `28329_6`. I ran into multiple bugs, and I
 resolved some of them. The remaining bugs are:
   1. The (spinning) onion image isn't as large as it's shown in the mockup
   1. There is a up button (back button) in the upper-lefthand corner of
 the settings screen and it does nothing
   1. The mockup shows a dividing line between radio button bridge types, I
 failed getting that working
   1. When the gear/cog button is clicked from the Tor Log screen, the
 bootstrap process isn't stopped

 (I'm probably forgetting some others, too)

 I took a different approach for built-in bridges than Orbot. The bridges
 are provided by Gecko preferences the same as Tor Launcher. I think
 this'll make maintaining the list easier. However, as a result of this,
 the bridges are fetched asynchronously, so I added a placeholder in the
 radio button list while we wait for the response from Gecko.

 I also added a Save button on the "Provide a Bridge" screen, because
 inputting a bridge into the the text box and then pressing "Back" didn't
 seem like an obvious flow.

 On the branch, you can ignore the last commit. I simply used that for
 testing the Radio Button creation.
