FYI, I have written code that downloads the present Tor Browser alpha
and Python Selenium client and monkey-patches them to play nice
together; see https://github.com/zackw/tailwagger .  It's very
specialized for my requirements right now, but might still be of use
to you.  Look especially at what is done to TBB and python-selenium by
the patches under pkg/tor-browser-3.0a3 and
pkg/python-selenium-2.33.0,  and the TbbDriver class in
client/tbbselenium.py .
