The main obstacle was that should Tor be removed from testing again -
which has happened in the past because Tor upstream considered
themselves unable to support a Tor version for the lifetime of stable -
we would end up with no more updates, and an ancient version or removal
again because of bpo policy to only accept backports of versions in

Alexander Wirt and I agreed on an exception to that rule, so I'll be
able to upload the packages from unstable to bpo, even if Tor was
removed from testing.
