This tool to scrap websites using randomized fingerprint seems to be
a completly different project from Panopticlick where the goal is to
evaluate the fingerprintability of a browser. Maybe a script like this
has some uses, however I don't think it's very useful in the case of
TBB where we are trying to make all browsers look the same.
