Thanks, Tomas, for the suggestion.
I actually tried to use Vidalia's Tor control code back in late 2010
when I looked for a C/C++ controller, but I chose not to use it for
several reasons: it lacked (and I think still does) the path
selection, Qt is a huge dependency, and I wasn't yet familiar with Qt
I was sidetracked for a while -- learning Qt dev in the process -- so
now Vidalia's looks pretty attractive. Since I was almost done with my
port, however, I might as well try to finish it and release it.
