Hmm. Maybe we could put these in /Applications/Tor? If we did that, we could 
pretty it up.

These would be good in /Applications/Tor too. Hell, while we're at it, we 
might even do a little TorCP-like thing up in AppleScript or whatever.. or a 
suite of AppleScripts (Stop Tor and Privoxy, Start Tor and Privoxy, Uninstall 
Privoxy)... whatever works. I could assist with this if you wanted.
