 The Tor Browser team is in the long run looking to upstream everything to
 Firefox so it's in everyone's interests to make this not Tor Browser

 I definitely don't agree that "meek-client-torbrowser is unlikely now ever
 to work for ordinary Firefox". There have been
 client-torbrowser/meek-client-torbrowser.go|minimal changes]] since my
 last proposed patch in 2016-06.

 If my suggestion of a dynamic cross-platform program is still not
 acceptable for some reason, another approach is to build separate programs
 using the same code. Start by renaming the files like this:

 m-c-torbrowser/linux.go                     -> m-c-firefox/torbrowser-
 m-c-torbrowser/mac.go                       -> m-c-firefox/torbrowser-
 m-c-torbrowser/meek-client-torbrowser.go    -> m-c-firefox/meek-client-
    (split tb-specific parts into a wrapper) -> m-c-firefox/meek-client-
 m-c-torbrowser/windows.go                   -> m-c-firefox/torbrowser-

 then go from there. However, someone else can write this patch, I don't
 have time for this these days.
