Description

Walkie-Talkie (http://cacr.uwaterloo.ca/techreports/2015/cacr2015-08.pdf) is supposed to be an effective website fingerprinting defense which uses browser modifications. We should evaluate this approach at least and possible include it into 5.0 if it holds what it promises.

The source code definitely needs to get cleaned-up before we can ship it but to make it easier for review I've attached a diff based on our current tor-browser-38.1.0esr-5.0-1 branch.

As I mentioned in the IRC meeting, this is not something we're going to want to rush into 5.0. I have a few questions for Tao, as well.

Turns out it is a much saner approach to base the diff on ESR 31 :)
