This is a good observation. Flash proxy (I think) predates the ability
to pass parameters in the Bridge line. I think it's something we should
support though. meek-client can take parameters on a Bridge line, but I
had to make it possible to do also through the command line, because the
version of tor shipped in the browser bundle doesn't support passing
those parameters.
