Comment (by timonh):

 I understand that it's hard to do this in a cross-platform manner but I
 think it would be good if an application running on a specific platform
 could inform Tor about network events.
 For example I had the idea to monitor android.net.conn.CONNECTIVITY_CHANGE
 on Android and set DisableNetwork if the network is down.
 But I'm not sure if DisableNetwork is suitable here. Maybe a new control
 command would be more appropriate?
