Changes (by acat):

 * status:  new => needs_revision


 I made a draft proposal here:
 I tried not to do too many changes for the migration and left refactoring
 work for torbutton.js and other chrome/content scripts out of the
 proposal. If you think this is needed, I guess the proposal could be
 extended to include those too.

 I have tested the approach by partially integrating torbutton into firefox
 central according to the document. Working:

 * Circuit display and circuit isolation.
 * New identity/new circuit in burger menu (new identity with some
 suspicious error messages on "restart").
 * NoScript integration for security levels.
 * about:tor

 Still some things missing, like `About Tor Browser` dialog, `torbutton-
 extensions.xul` and others. Can finish it if the proposal is ok.
