Wow, even more than I thought! :)

I think so. Again, I think the path to max success for you here is to
make your own package/collection/tar.gz of launch scripts for different
scenarios. That way, you can experiment without getting bogged down by
design proposals and formalities for making the TBB itself usable.

It might be the case at first that it seems like you're being ignored.
Once you have stuff that works, or at least have some kind of plan, I
think people will listen/test stuff/make suggestions on tor-dev.  Any
earlier stages might want the wider input from the tor-talk crowd,

It's quite possible that Jake's "Zygote-process named-pipe Tor
coordinator" can just be an addition to all of this stuff at the end, as
a helper process for finding the right Tor socks port. It's also likely
that simple python (or even shell) prototypes will work just fine,
even if they only just guess at defaults and test them.

If you block on env var support in Torbutton, please let me know. Right
now I think you can make a lot of progress even as-is. I think #5611
should help you do more, but isn't strickly needed yet? Am I correct
