General Tor energy bits moved here...

re 305 etc

It wouldn't be unusual for an app to pop up some form
of captcha, challenge, or data exchange where needed.
Some of that model exists in form of onion service authentication
config... some helper data that grants access, makes things happen,
whether passive or active interrupt. The controller would be the interface.
Yet tor currently has no mechanism on platforms to handle such
protocols and popups... thus like onion auth, the user has know
they need it for something and configure it in advance.

Try investigating an ssh-agent like tor tool... preloaded
with users Proof-of-*, 2FA, consumables, etc to dole out,
even automatically, where needed and permitted.
