Description

In reference to #3501 - Vidalia needs to learn how to talk to a Control Port over TLS. It seems best to use a TOFU trust model.

In theory this means that Vidalia would then be a safe desktop controller though perhaps needs a bit of a "Setup Wizard" before it would be ready for prime time.

For localhost connections, I don't think we should force TLS. Although I agree it's better, I think that if a user suddenly sees a sign that says "Hey, do you accept this key to connect to tor?" or something, it will be confusing.
