In Vidalia there's a ProxyExecutableArguments configuration option for Polipo. I'd also like:

PidginExecutableArguments so I can set -c for the config dir and -m for allowing multiple instances of Pidgin

BrowserExecutableArguments so I can change the Firefox arguments without having to change Vidalia itself.

Sounds like it could be useful for the Tor IM Browser Bundle.

Anybody have a patch? :)

With Matt we already have a plan to make a plugin framework for things like this one.

Having Vidalia handle other process is kind of a hack to make the bundles work. So the idea is to have plugins that do all this, and Vidalia can be a Tor GUI and a plugin framework.

The plugins are going to be in a form of javascript (QtScript), so basically they'll be a plain text file (or may be a zip with some structure).
This way we can separate the hacks from Vidalia itself and its intented porpouse, and just by modifying simple .js files, things like this can be added.

The rough ideas are in here:
I'm going to start implement it as soon as the control socket patch is done. It's going to take a while, but at the end it's going to be far better solution than everybody depending on/patching Vidalia.
