The update for the 'user.actions' template allows for
an end-user to enter any number of HTTPS URL's that
they wish to access through Tor.  These HTTPS URL's
have priority over the defult blocking of HTTPS
traffic.  You can access the HTTPS sites you specify
but all other HTTPS traffic is blocked by default.

IMO I would rather use a non-HTTPS connection to allow
for filtering which offers a good deal of anonymity.  

When I am not using an HTTPS connection I do not
transmit any personally identifable information,
credit-card numbers, real name, etc.  

If I want to visit a site I trust, where I am going to
transmit my credit-card number or home phone I
generally use a HTTPS connetion.

Level of trust is an important issue when you decide
which HTTPS URL's you choose to allow.
