Just to be sure: it's not so much about Guix users increasing the load
on Tor Network as of Guix users not having the benefits of this
extension and being prey to sslstriping.

Since you're giving a green light and I've encountered further
deterrence down the trail, I'll be sending this patch series which
also updates Tor Browser to the latest version. I've left comments
on code where I see room for improvement, in case someones wants to
help. For now, I'm trying to solve this issue and I think I'll
start a new thread for tracking it in order to avoid clutter here
as https-everywhere requires a good many new rust libs.

Indeed they both share many inputs and phases. I've actually started
this definition from the IceCat one. I'll think on how to merge
them back. Probably some inheritance is in need.

This patch series adds Tor Browser version 9.5.4 to Guix.
Unsurprisignly, building it with '--rounds=2' seems to imply that
it is deterministic.
