This would actually be a fairly straightforward bit of refactoring,
mostly -- the "server-side" endpoints ("onion:...") already do
auto-launch Tor, and there are some @staticmethods to directly create
TCPHiddenServiceEndpoints attached to existing or launched Tor

If anyone would like to help, that'd be great; the enhancement ticket
for the "tor:..." endpoints is: 


Anything unclear can be discussed there.

Note that currently the usual strategy for "onion:" endpoints is to
launch a new Tor instance because of permissions "reasons" -- for the
"tor:" type endpoints, any running Tor that has a valid SOCKS port
should work, so that should be the preferred strategy *unless*
.get_global_tor() has ever been called, in which case that Tor instance
should be used.

I'm usually idling in #tor-dev on OFTC if anyone wants to take a try at
this :)
