This feature is underway. You can add a ticket on Github or via our dev
tracker: https://dev.guardianproject.info/projects/onionkit

For most users, it will be default (9040, 9050, etc), but its definitely
possible that people can change them, especially if they have the
dreaded Samsung Link conflict.

As for the implementation, it will simply be an Intent you send to Orbot
and it will respond with the values.
