 Ok, I have a way better version of this in mikeperry/ticket16917 (commit
 b0e0dbd219264084173f5a851387d8ef11bd54e1). That patch creates a new hidden
 pref '''extensions.torbutton.use_nontor_proxy'''. If that gets set to
 true, NoScript ABE is enabled (to block localhost/RFC1918 connections),
 and SOCKS u+p domain isolation is disabled. It does the reverse when the
 pref is flipped back. In both cases, it also does a new identity

 When this pref is true, an SSH socks -D proxy can be configured in the TBB
 network settings, and it works.
