I would like to request the ability to launch TorBrowser directly from Vidalia. My reasons are:
1) After a crash affecting only TorBrowser, it saves time by removing the need to quit Vidalia, then re-launch the whole bundle and wait for a connection to be re-established;
2) After manually quitting TorBrowser but not Vidalia, it saves time for the same reasons as in 1).

Additional reasons include not having to restart Vidalia when other apps on one's system besides TBB are depending on the connection.

I'm closing this since we aren't using Vidalia as a TBB interface anymore.
