 Replying to [comment:1 arma]:
 > Really? Shouldn't the controller be listening for CLOCK_SKEW
 STATUS_GENERAL events, and reacting to them as a problem that it needs to
 bring to the user's attention?
 That's one possibility, but the Tor Launcher devs have rejected that
 before for various reasons, and this is the best way to get a substantial
 usability improvement with the existing Tor Launcher.
