 FWIW, the current torbutton license is
 https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbutton.git/tree/src/LICENSE (Which seems
 sort of historical).  And I don't really care either way, but it's
 ultimately not my call, I just want this fixed.

 My plan was to integrate it into torbutton, instead of having it be a
 separate addon, though I'll drop the idea if the browser developers tell
 me that this should be solved another way.
