 > In tor-browser-build, we will replace these jars/libs with the ones that
 are generated as part of the build. The developer who wants to use tor-
 android-service in their own project will have these libraries already
 provided in the libs folder. This keeps a consistent approach. I'm still
 exploring whether these dependent libraries should be treated as provided,
 meaning they won't be packaged in the resulting aar.
 > Ideally, in the future, I'd like to get the TOPL artifacts officially
 deployed to a maven repo and pull these down as dependencies during a
 regular developer build. The tor-browser-build would pull down the
 dependencies as part of the build process as well.

 Ah, so this is simply a stop-gap until they're available from a maven
 repo? That's fine. And if tor-browser-build will build these independently
 and (presumably) overwrite the vendored files, then I'm okay with that
 too, thanks for explaining.
