New dependency in obfsproxy master: txsocksx

the newest commits in obfsproxy added a new dependency: txsocksx.

txsocksx is there so that obfsproxy can connect to outgoing proxy servers, so that we can finally fix #5195. This means, that when #8402 gets merged in little-t-tor, user will be able to use PTs along with HTTPSPRoxy or SOCKSPRoxy.

I'm opening this ticket to inform you that obfsproxy > obfsproxy-0.2.8, will not work properly without txsocksx. So TBB will need a similar patch to the one in #11478.

One more thing that's required is Twisted 13.2.0. A quick check of gitian/versions shows TWISTED_VER=13.1.0. The fix I have pending for #11558 will remove this requirement, but updating Twisted is probably a good idea.

FWIW, since #11558 txsocksx is an optional dependency. It's only mandatory if you want to use a proxy.

We are pretty close with bug_11535_v4 in my public tor-browser-bundle repo. We only have to doublecheck that nothing gets downloaded and used while building these new dependencies. That seemed to be the case at first glance.
