Well, it emphasizes that it's generic, gives a better view of the
architecture, and should be usable by anyone competent (unless my
rewrite is bad) to add support for Pluggable Transports to any
client/server code base.

All the Tor specific stuff is neatly contained in it's own section
now that people can be free to ignore.

Stuff it still should do:

 * Fold in the ExtORPort spec since that's useful for people that
   aren't tor.

 * Document the tor pt external mode torrc configuration format (In my
   defense, the current spec doesn't do this either).

So, yes?  Dunno.  There's a limit to how far I can de-torify this sort
of document, and I think this is a reasonable step in the right
