Description

Make TIMB and TBB/PTTBB cooperate in a smarter way. For example, there shouldn't be two tor processes running when starting both bundles. This is something that might be left as future work. Though, even without this task, TIMB should be smart enough to not break when TBB is running at the same time.

Let's start by configuring TIMB to a different SocksPort (9150) and a different ControlPort than TBB (9151).

How about 9152 for SocksPort and 9153 for ControlPort?

Not wanting to hijack this, but I think feature request #14864 is related.

This is important but not a blocker for #14161. Removing parent for now.
