Comment(by mikeperry):

 Oh, some things to keep in mind: We will want to exempt the user's
 user_prefs.js, any extensions the user has installed, the torrc file, and
 any generated Firefox profile files, tor files, and state.

 Tor has support for multiple torrc files via the --defaults-torrc option,
 so what we'll want to do is make sure pref changes get written to a torrc
 that is exempt from updating, and only update the main defaults.torrc that
 we ship.

 My guess is that exempting these things will be easier than support for
 traversing beyond the parent dir, and probably cleaner anyways.. But I
 just wanted to give you a heads up.
